Speaker: Juliana Stachurska (MIT) Title: Large-volume CRES detectors for the Project 8 neutrino mass measurement

February 16 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Date:  Friday, February 16, 2024

Time: 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM

Location: Sessler Conference Room–50A-5132 [Hybrid and In-Person]

Speaker: Juliana Stachurska (MIT)

Title: Large-volume CRES detectors for the Project 8 neutrino mass measurement

Abstract: Project 8 is a next-generation experiment aiming to directly measure the neutrino mass using the tritium endpoint method with a targeted sensitivity of 40 meV. The development of new technology and methods are required to reach this unprecedented sensitivity. Having established a new measuring technique, Cyclotron Radiation Emission Spectroscopy (CRES), we are now focusing on the scaling of CRES to large volumes and the development of an atomic source for a pilot-scale CRES experiment with atomic tritium. In this talk, I will focus on the CRES development, highlighting the milestones already achieved, and will present our next R&D demonstrators.
