Janet Conrad, Walter LeCroy Professor of Physics at Columbia University and William Louis of Los Alamos National Labs, presented the first MiniBooNE Neutrino Oscillation Experiment results in a special seminar at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory on Wednesday, April 11, 2007
Drs. Conrad and Louis are also fellow co-spokespersons of the MiniBooNE Neutrino Oscillation Experiment.
Later that same day, Michael Shaevitz, Professor of Physics and Director of the Nevis Laboratories at Columbia University and a founding member of the experiment, held a seminar to present the MiniBooNE experiment results to the university’s Physics Department.
MiniBooNE has excluded electron to muon neutrino oscillations as an explanation for anomalous events observed by a previous experiment, LSND. The results are important for our understanding of the Standard Model of particle physics.
Further information may be found in the press release or from Professor Shaevitz's seminar.
