Introduction to False Paths

In the history of neutrino physics, there have been what we call “false paths”. They correspond to theoretical speculations or to measurements either wrong or overinterpreted, which did not survive after a period which could be several years. These false Continue Reading …

LSND, MiniBoone…

LSND and miniBoone oscillation results From 1995, the LSND experiment looked for in a neutrino beam produced at the Los Alamos laboratory. The result was the observation of an excess of interpreted as neutrino oscillation with parameters (Δm2 ~ 1eV2) Continue Reading …

Discoverless double beta decay

The funny title is from V. Tretyak [Tre11]. He excellently reviewed many evidences or claims for double beta decay without neutrinos since the 50’s, results which were never confirmed. The most recent claim in 2002 has been by Klapdor-Kleingrothaus, using Continue Reading …
