Search for Heavy Neutrinos using the CMS detector at the LHC Ghent University
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is currently the most powerful particle accelerator in the world,
delivering proton-proton collision in a lab environment at unprecedented energies. After the
discovery of the Higgs Boson in 2012, which was the latest missing piece of the Standard Model
(SM), the priority of the LHC program has now shifted towards the search for new physics. Some of
the most popular theories beyond the ...

Towards the discovery or exclusion of neutrino oscillations at short baseline with the SoLid experiment. University of Antwerp
In this project we intend to work towards the first observation of astrophysical tau-neutrinos.
We will use data taken by the IceCube neutrino observatory located deep in the ice at the
South Pole. IceCube has an instrumented volume of a cubic kilometre and is by far the largest
neutrino detector in the world. It is sensitive to neutrinos with energies between 1010 and
Of the ...
Neutrino interactions on Argon Ghent University
Since the experimental confirmation of neutrino oscillations, these elusive particles attract more attention than ever. A number of experiments has been set up to find out more about the fascinating properties of neutrinos. A common need of these experiments is a detailed understanding of the interactions of neutrinos with nuclei, as this is an important way to detect them. As neutrinos interact only weakly with matter, obtaining precise ...
