lecture The Neutrino Portal: sterile neutrinos, cosmology and other signatures​
Date/Time: Tuesday, 22 May 2018 - 14:30 (Europe/Rome)
Location: LNF ( Aula Seminari )
Chairperson: Luca Vecchi (EPFL)
Description:
I discuss scenarios in which a dark light sector couples to the Standard Model via the so-called “neutrino portal”. A generic implication of this framework is the existence of gauge-singlet fermions (sterile neutrinos) that act as messengers between the dark sector and the active neutrinos. I show under which conditions cosmological constraints become inefficient and discuss what new phenomena neutrino oscillation​ experiments may be able to observe.
