Currently, neutrinos are known to have three different types, or "flavors" - the electron neutrino, the muon neutrino and the tau neutrino
. Each of these flavors can change into the other, "oscillating" spontaneously as they travel over long distances.
Asaoka et al., "Observational search for PeV-EeV tau neutrino
from GRB081203A," Astrophysical Journal Letters, vol.
Only when shedding its invisibility cloak by transforming into an electron, muon or tau neutrino
could the sterile neutrino be detected.
Three types are known to exist: the electron neutrino, the muon neutrino, and the tau neutrino
. Electron neutrinos are emitted in vast numbers by the nuclear reactions that energize the sun.
Datta, "Nonstandard interactions of tau neutrino
via charged Higgs and W' contribution," Physical Review D, vol.
The dominant Higgs Boson dictates the type of Electron in its outer Shell as either an Electron or Electron Neutrino as in the s Block, Muon Neutrino in the f Block, Muon in the p Block, Tau Neutrino
in the g Block and Tau in the d Block.
Physicists provide the first direct evidence of the tau neutrino
The up quark [u.sub.1] and the antiup quark [[bar.u].sub.1] completely annihilate into a tau neutrino
[v.sub.[tau]] or a tau antineutrino [[bar.v].sub.[tau]].
Neutrinos are known to have three different types or "flavors" - the electron neutrino, the muon neutrino and the tau neutrino
. The fact that each of these flavors can change into the other, oscillating spontaneously as they travel over long distances, suggests that neutrinos exist in different mass states - something that pokes a hole in the Standard Model.
Since the neutron is believed to be spherically symmetric, having a much simpler topology than the proton (which appears to be peanut or torus shaped depending upon respectively whether the quark spin aligns with the proton spin or opposite to it), and since the magnetic moment of the neutron is opposite in direction to that of the highest magnetic moment neutrino flavor--the tau neutrino
which has a magnetic moment two orders of magnitude higher than the electron neutrino and/or the muon neutrino--the neutrino-neutron inelastic interaction is first analyzed herein.
