  • AbstractNeutrinos are the only fundamental fermions that have no electric charge. Because of that neutrinos have no direct electromagnetic interaction and at relatively small energies they can take part only in weak processes with virtual W± and Z0 bosons (like β-decay of nuclei, inverse β process \hbox{$\bar\nu_{e}+p\to e^{+}n$} ν̅e + p → e + n , etc.). Neutrino masses are many orders of magnitude smaller than masses of charged leptons and quarks. These two circumstances make neutrinos unique… CONTINUE READING
