Neutrino Observatory in India

India is constructing a giant Neutrino Observatory (INO) in a 1,300 meters (4,300 ft) deep cave under Ino Peak near Theni, Tamil Nadu, India. The INO is a particle physics research project to primarily observe and study atmospheric neutrinos. The project is anticipated to provide a precise measurement of neutrino mixing parameters and will be ..


Applications of Neutrinos

The neutrino is a tiny elementary particle, but it is not part of the atom. They exist in nature. Neutrino has a very tiny mass, no charge and spins half. It interacts very weakly with other matter particles so weakly that every second trillions of neutrinos fall on us and pass through our bodies unnoticed. ..


Neutrinos and Neutrino Oscillation

Neutrinos are one of the elementary particles, which make up the universe. They are similar to electrons except that they do not carry electric charge. As they are electrically neutral, they are not affected by the electromagnetic forces like electrons or protons. Neutrinos are only leptons with no electric nature. Other leptons, which carry electric ..
