The Neutrino or, More Precisely, the Neutrinos: Elusive and Weird Particles, Able to Arrive from Very Far Away

  • Mario Bertolotti
Chapter
Part of the Astronomers' Universe book series (ASTRONOM)

Abstract

Although neutrinos are the most abundant component of cosmic rays at sea level, due to their very weak interaction with matter it has been possible to detect them only in the last 50 years, after large underground detectors became available.

Keywords

Neutrino Oscillation Sterile Neutrino Solar Neutrino Atmospheric Neutrino Electronic Neutrino 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
