Why neutrinos matter
The recent discoveries in neutrino physics have revolutionized our understanding of neutrinos, while also bringing forth an intriguing set of intertwined questions concerning fundamental symmetries, the basic interactions of subatomic particles, and the role neutrinos play in the cosmos.
Research in the coming decade promises the opportunity to explore a series of outstanding questions:
Based on the wealth of science opportunities, neutrino scientists at the University of North Carolina, Duke University, North Carolina State University, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory have come together to establish an institute focused on neutrino science and its interconnections to nuclear astrophysics, astronomy, and cosmology.
The Institute for Neutrino Science and Astrophysics (INSA) has an established group of senior faculty as well as talented junior faculty that are either involved as leaders of major international neutrino experimental efforts or are acknowledged theoretical experts. We are currently in the process of forming INSA and welcome participation by scientists interested in an international center for neutrino science.
Some of the key INSA goals are:
