Exploration of mass splitting and oscillation parameters with sterile neutrinos using TeV-scale neutrinos from IceCube
By Alisa King-Klemperer | | Research |
Neutrinos are tiny, nearly massless particles that traverse long distances across the universe, interacting with matter only through the weak force. They come in three different types, or “flavors”—electron, muon, and tau—and during their journey through the atmosphere and the Earth can transform, or “oscillate,” from one flavor to another.  [...]

IceCube search using DeepCore data adds to the sterile neutrino puzzle
By Alisa King-Klemperer | | Research |
When cosmic rays crash into the Earth’s atmosphere, air showers containing atmospheric muons and neutrinos are produced that rain down on Earth. During their journey, atmospheric neutrinos can morph or “oscillate” between three different flavors: electron, muon, and tau. These neutrinos can interact weakly with other particles and, thus, are [...]

Week 27 at the Pole
By Jean DeMerit | | Life at the Pole |
This group is all smiles, so it looks like they survived their 14-hour journey following Frodo and Sam from the Shire to Mount Doom. Well, “follow” in this case means doing cardio for the duration of the movies’ combined run times. This was their “Walk to Mordor,” which was preceded [...]
