Why both Dirac mass and Majorana mass terms are needed to explain the mass of a neutrino?
As I understand neutrinos, there are three different flavors, all with different masses. Although the masses of these neutrinos have not been directly measured, their mass differences have been. ...
Layman here, but EE and BS physics. I know that light is affected by gravity. But are neutrinos? During the collapse of a star into a neutron star, as the electrons join protons to form neutrons ...
It is now said that neutrinos have mass. If an object has mass then it also emits a gravitational field. I appreciate the neutrinos mass is predicted to be small, but as there are so many produced ...
Neutrinos can pass from one family to another (that is, change in taste) in a process known as neutrino oscillation. The oscillation between the different families occurs randomly, and the likelihood ...
