School of Physics Colloquia

Monday 27 March

Dr Jan Hamann, ARC Future Fellow, University of New South Wales
Neutrinos in Cosmology
Even though neutrinos make up only a very small fraction of the energy density of the Universe today, they have a profound impact on its evolution.

This allows us to deduce some of their properties from observations of, e.g., the cosmic microwave background (CMB) or the large scale structure.

I will review the status of cosmological neutrinos after the release of CMB data from the Planck mission, and give an outlook on what we can expect to learn about them in the near future.

3.00pm, Slade Lecture Theatre, Physics Building A28

Cake and coffee are served at all School Colloquia.
