Neutrino flavor

Slide 47

Tau Transparency/Regeneration

Tau Transparency/Regeneration

ne and nµ are absorbed in the Earth via charged current interactions (muons range out)

Above ~100 TeV the Earth is opaque to ne & νµ.

But, the Earth never becomes completely opaque to nt

Due to the short t lifetime, t’s produced in nt charged-current interactions decay back into nt

Also, secondary ne & νµ. fluxes are produced in the tau decays.

Slide 48

Flavor Ratios

Flavor Ratios

The ratio of flavors at the source is expected to be 0:2:1= nt : nm : ne

Since the distance to the source is >> than the oscillation length – any admixture at the source should wind up:

1:1:1= nt : nm : ne

when arriving at earth

What if that isn’t true?

Slide 49

Exotic neutrino properties if not 1:1:1

Exotic neutrino properties if not 1:1:1

Neutrino decay (Beacom, Bell, Hooper, Pakvasa& Weiler)

CPT violation (Barenboim& Quigg)

Oscillation to steriles with very tiny delta δm2

(Crocker et al; Berezinskyet al.)

Pseudo-Dirac mixing (Beacom, Bell, Hooper, Learned, Pakvasa& Weiler)

3+1 or 2+2 models with sterile neutrinos (Dutta, Reno and Sarcevic)

Magnetic moment transitions (Enqvist, Keränen, Maalampi)

Varying mass neutrinos (Fardon, Nelson & Weiner; Hung & Pas)
