Title: 2018 Fermilab Physics Slam: Explaining neutrino oscillations

Abstract

For his 2018 Physics Slam presentation at Fermilab, Northwestern University scientist André de Gouvêa took on one of the most fascinating particles in physics: the neutrino. In 10 minutes, he explained—with the help of a few props—what neutrinos are and how physicists discovered that these particles can transform into one other, a phenomenon known as neutrino oscillation. At the end of the evening, the audience declared him to be the winner of the 2018 Physics Slam. Curious about neutrinos?
