‘I have done a terrible thing, I have postulated a particle that cannot be detected.’ Wolfgang Pauli spoke these words about the neutrino, when he predicted its existence in 1930. The second most numerous particle in the universe is notoriously hard to observe, as neutrinos interact very weakly with matter. However, humanity has detected them, and neutrino physics is one of the frontiers of modern science. In this talk, Alfons Weber will discuss the fascinating subject of neutrino oscillations, which won the Nobel Prize for Physics in 2015, and has far reaching implications for the Standard Model of Physics.
