The Bolshoi simulation

A virtual world?  The more complex the data base the more accurate one’s simulation is achieved. The point is though that you have to capture scientific processes through calorimeter examinations just as you do in the LHC. So these backdrops … Continue reading

first tau-neutrino “appearing” out of several billion of billions muon neutrinos

Layout of the CNGS beam line. The OPERA neutrino experiment [1] at the underground Gran Sasso Laboratory (LNGS) was designed to perform the first detection of neutrino oscillations in direct appearance mode in the νμ→ντ channel, the signature being the … Continue reading

Energy Boost From Shock Front

Main Components of CNGS A 400 GeV/c proton beam is extracted from the SPS in 10.5 microsecond short pulses of 2.4×1013 protons per pulse. The proton beam is transported through the transfer line TT41 to the CNGS target T40. The … Continue reading

Seeing Underlying Structures

 There is  gap between,  “Proton Collision ->Decay to Muons and Muon Neutrinos ->Tau Neutrino ->[gap] tau lepton may travel some tens of microns before decaying back into neutrino and charged tracks.” Use the case of Relativistic Muons?  An analysis of … Continue reading

Cohen-Glashow Argument

Bee:And for all I know you need a charge for Cherenkov radiation and neutrinos don’t have one. Fig. 1: Cerenkov radiation involves the nearly continuous emission of photons by a charged particle moving faster than the speed of light in … Continue reading

Proton Collision ->Decay to Muons and Muon Neutrinos ->Tau Neutrino ->

…..tau lepton may travel some tens of microns before decaying back into neutrino and charged tracks  Before I comment on the result, let me give you a little background on the whole thing. Opera is a very innovative concept in … Continue reading

Cherenkov radiation

Taking the formalisms of electromagnetic radiation and supposing a tachyon had an electric charge—as there is no reason to suppose a priori that tachyons must be either neutral or charged—then a charged tachyon must lose energy as Cherenkov radiation[15]—just as … Continue reading

P.I. Chats: Faster-than-light neutrinos?

Measurements by GPS confirm that the neutrinos identified by the Super-Kamiokande detector were indeed produced on the east coast of Japan. The physicists therefore estimate that the results obtained point to a 99.3% probability that electron neutrino appearance was detected.Neutrino … Continue reading

Measurement of the neutrino velocity with the OPERA detector

Scanning results tau decays New results from OPERA on neutrino propertieslive from Main Amphitheatre. “This result comes as a complete surprise,” said OPERA spokesperson, Antonio Ereditato of the University of Bern. “After many months of studies and cross checks we … Continue reading
