Using neutrino oscillation to probe the matter/antimatter asymmetry of the universe
Abstract: The discovery of neutrino flavour oscillation, and the existence of non-zero neutrino masses, is the only confirmed observation of phenomena not allowed by the standard model of particle physics. In this colloquium I will describe the experimental evidence for neutrino oscillation and discuss how we are using accelerator-based neutrino experiments to study why we live in a universe made of matter and not antimatter. I will focus on the T2K experiment in Japan, but also cover the NovA experiment in the USA, and the next generation experiments Hyper-Kamiokande (Japan) and DUNE (USA).
