SEMINAR: Long Baseline Neutrino Experiment
Over the past two decades we have made significant progress in our understanding of the fundamental nature of the elementary particle, called the Neutrino. The Long-Baseline Neutrino Experiment (LBNE) is a broad scientific program being developed in the United States as an international project to further study the neutrino particle. LBNE consists of an intense neutrino beam produced at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab), a highly capable set of neutrino detectors on the Fermilab campus (Near Detector), and a large underground liquid argon Far Detector at Sanford Underground Research Facility (SURF) in the state of South Dakota. LBNE will make detailed studies of neutrino oscillations including measurements of the mass hierarchy and CP violation that take advantage of the 1300 km baseline. At the far site, the large underground detector will open a new window to the search for nucleon decay, supernova neutrinos, and interesting astrophysical phenomena. This talk will give an overview of our present understanding of neutrino physics the plans for the LBNE experiment.
Dr. Bipul Bhuyan is an Associate Professor in the Department of Physics, Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati (IIT Guwahati). Dr. Bhuyan got his Ph.D. degree in Physics from University of Delhi in 2003 by working on the Rare Kaon decay experiments (E787 & E949) at Brookhaven National Laboratory, New York. Prior to joining IIT Guwahati, Dr. Bhuyan worked on the BaBar experiment at Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) as a Post-Doctoral Fellow as part of the University of Victoria, Canada group.
Dr. Bhuyan is an experimental particle physicist and is currently working with several International Collaboration to understand the Nature at the most fundamental level. In particular, Dr. Bhuyan is interested in understanding the matter anti-matter asymmetry in the Universe, which physicists believe to be due to a phenomenon called CP violation and the fundamental nature of the neutrino particles. Dr. Bhuyan is currently collaborating with the Belle and Belle II experiments at KEK in Japan, the Nova and the Long Baseline Neutrino Experiment (LBNE) at Fermi Lab, USA and the India-based Neutrino Observatory (INO) experiment in India.
