As a result of the successful assembly and subsequent two years of reliable operation of the Sudbury neutrino detector, scientists were able to report last June that electron neutrinos from the sun transform into neutrinos of other types during their flight to Earth.
It arises in the form of the electron neutrino with the mass of about 0.
An electron neutrino may masquerade as a muon neutrino for a while, then revert.
The Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (SNO) in Canada was designed to capture the two exotic flavors more effectively and distinguish them from electron neutrinos.
Neutrinos are known to have three different types or "flavors" - the electron neutrino, the muon neutrino and the tau neutrino.
Evidence of Electron Neutrino Appearance in a Muon Neutrino Beam.
The electron neutrino is the type generated in the Sun's core and is the only type that solar-neutrino detectors can respond to as of now.
Hence these scattered and captured neutrinos do not cause any further de-stabilization of the weak cohesive interaction of mesons and of gluons that hold the nucleus intact/together, normally ascribed to the weak force--an internal interaction --but now shown to depend upon momenta transfer from externally impinging particles including primarily the muon neutrino and the electron neutrino.
Since the neutron is believed to be spherically symmetric, having a much simpler topology than the proton (which appears to be peanut or torus shaped depending upon respectively whether the quark spin aligns with the proton spin or opposite to it), and since the magnetic moment of the neutron is opposite in direction to that of the highest magnetic moment neutrino flavor--the tau neutrino which has a magnetic moment two orders of magnitude higher than the electron neutrino and/or the muon neutrino--the neutrino-neutron inelastic interaction is first analyzed herein.
Neutrinos come in three types--which scientists call flavors--known as the electron neutrino, muon neutrino, and tau neutrino.
In the standard model of physics, neutrinos come in three flavors: electron neutrino, muon neutrino, and tau neutrino.
According to the standard model of particle physics, neutrinos come in three varieties: the electron neutrino, the muon neutrino, and the tau neutrino.
The electron and electron neutrino, the muon and muon neutrino, and the tau and tau neutrino make up the lepton family.
According to the standard model of particle physics, neutrinos come in three varieties: the electron neutrino, muon neutrino, and tau neutrino, along with their antimatter counterparts.
