ISOLDE Seminar

Opportunities of Neutrino Physics at Oak Ridge National Laboratory

by Mr Alfredo Galindo-Uribarri



Visitor's room Bd 508

The Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) and the High Flux Reactor (HFIR) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory are two very powerful neutrino sources that open new physics opportunities. I will describe some recent neutrino physics activities being pursued by members of the Physics Division such as COHERENT and PROSPECT.  I will make particular emphasis on the progress of the project PROSPECT (the Precision Reactor Oscillation SPECTrum measurement). A collaboration between US universities and national laboratories has installed the PROSPECT detector near the HFIR. HFIR uses Highly Enriched Uranium which means a pure U-235 antineutrino spectrum.
