The particles, called anti-neutrinos, were detected at the underground Daya Bay experiment, located near a nuclear reactor in China, 55 kilometers north of Hong Kong.
McDonough and his colleagues are proposing a 10,000-ton submersible detector they have named "Hanohano" (Hawaiian for "magnificent"), for the Hawaii Anti-Neutrino Observatory.
In neutron radiative [beta]-decay, the polarization can differ appreciably from unity, so that the calculation of the polarization is necessary to realize a SM test; significant deviations from this prediction would nevertheless signify the palpable presence of a left-handed anti-neutrino or of non-V-A currents.
The theory was useful and helpful, and that neutrinos are given off as part of the process of Beta decay has been more than adequately confirmed by subsequent observations and experiments (though the particle emitted with the electron in the process of Beta-decay is now called an anti-neutrino, and it is considered an open scientific question whether anti-neutrinos are identical to neutrinos.
To study them you have to produce them at very high rates and my research is all about maximising anti-neutrino production," said Dr Adriana Bungau, a research fellow at the University of Huddersfield and a member of its International Institute for Accelerator Applications.
It is interpreted [6] that in the case of neutrinos this property can generate neutrino asymmetry in the Universe, causing the dispersion energy relation for the neutrino and its anti-neutrino to be different giving rise to differences in their number density, and associated with the left-hand helicity of the neutrino.
It refers to a particle called the B-bar meson that decays into a D meson, an anti-neutrino and a tau lepton (3B to D-star-tau-nu2).
Therefore [sigma] is linearly energy dependent for both the neutrino and the anti-neutrino, and, thus, so is the heat carry-off phenomenon.
Based on the unprecedently clear geo anti-neutrino data, the answer is no, say the UMass Amherst physicists.
