Current unknowns in the three-neutrino framework

Prediction of the Neutrinos Masses Using Some Empirical Formulae

In a paper in year 2011 the author implicitly predicted the masses of the neutrinos using some old empirical formulae. Now this prediction is explicitly written, mass of one neutrino is calculated as

Natural TeV cutoff of the Higgs field from a multiplicative Lagrangian

The various types of Lagrangian can be added to the standard Lagrangian with the invariant of the equation of motion. In this paper, we construct the multiplicative Lagrangian of a complex scalar

First Calorimetric Measurement of Electron Capture in $${}^{193}$$193Pt with a Transition-Edge Sensor

The neutrino mass can be extracted from a high statistics, high resolution calorimetric spectrum of electron capture in $${}^{163}$$163Ho. In order to better understand the shape of the calorimetric



Evidence for oscillation of atmospheric neutrinos

We present an analysis of atmospheric neutrino data from a 33.0 kiloton-year (535-day) exposure of the Super–Kamiokande detector. The data exhibit a zenith angle dependent deficit of muon neutrinos

Can neutrino mass be measured in low-energy electron capture decay?

The standard kinematic method for determining neutrino mass from the beta decay of tritium or other isotope is to measure the shape of the electron spectrum near the endpoint. It has been known for

Limit on electron neutrino mass from observation of the beta decay of molecular tritium

We report the most sensitive upper limit set on the mass of the electron antineutrino. The upper limit of 9.4 eV (95% confidence level) was obtained from a study of the shape of the beta decay

First Results from KamLAND: Evidence for Reactor Anti-Neutrino Disappearance

KamLAND has been used to measure the flux of ¯ ν e ’s from distant nuclear reactors. In an exposure of 162 ton · yr (145.1 days) the ratio of the number of observed inverse β -decay events to the

On the helicity of neutrinos

Observation of High-Energy Neutrino Reactions and the Existence of Two Kinds of Neutrinos

From the reaction pi /sup plus or minus / yields mu /sup plus or minus / + ( nu / nu /sup -/), it is dem onstrated that the neutrinos produce mu mesons but not electrons and are likely to be

Assessment of molecular effects on neutrino mass measurements from tritium β decay

The beta decay of molecular tritium currently provides the highest sensitivity in laboratory-based neutrino mass measurements. The upcoming Karlsruhe Tritium Neutrino (KATRIN) experiment will improve

Relativistic cyclotron radiation detection of tritium decay electrons as a new technique for measuring the neutrino mass

The shape of the beta-decay energy distribution is sensitive to the mass of the electron neutrino. Attempts to measure the endpoint shape of tritium decay have so far seen no distortion from the

First results from KamLAND: evidence for reactor antineutrino disappearance.

In the context of two-flavor neutrino oscillations with CPT invariance, all solutions to the solar neutrinos problem except for the "large mixing angle" region are excluded.
