About the INPA Seminars

All seminars are on Fridays (unless otherwise noted) and start at 12:00 (noon) with a brief presentation of the weekly scientific news. Typically the talks end by 13:00. The seminars take place in Bldg. 50A, room 5132.

The committee members are:

The following Seminar schedule for the Institute for Nuclear and Particle Astrophysics is tentative. The seminar becomes final usually a few days before the Friday of the talk.

April 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Speaker: Roger Huang (UC Berkeley)

Title: 0νββ Search Results from One Ton-Year of CUORE Data


The search for neutrinoless double beta decay (0νββ) is currently the most sensitive way to test the hypothesis that neutrinos may be Majorana particles and obtain insight as to the nature of neutrino masses. CUORE (Cryogenic Underground Observatory for Rare Events) first began taking data over 3 years ago and is now one of the leading experiments in the current international 0νββ landscape. It utilizes a cryogenic bolometric approach, operating 742 kg of TeO2 at a temperature of ~10 mK to search for the neutrinoless double beta decay of Te-130. This talk will present new results from the search for 0νββ with CUORE, coming from an analysis of data corresponding to over one ton-year of exposure.

Also, on Fridays from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm you are welcome to join the INPA Speaker for a brown-bag lunch in the small Pers Hall conference room, 54-130B.

INPA Tea Series

The Physics and Nuclear Science Divisions have together been leaders in revolutionary changes in our understanding of neutrinos and cosmology. Everyone is welcome to attend the open forum. Tea and light refreshments will be served.
