Nuclear reactor and astrophysics neutrinos with the JUNO experiement


The Jiangmen Underground Neutrino Observatory (JUNO) is a 20 kton liquid scintillator underground detector, under construction in China. The main goal of the experiment is the neutrino mass hierarchy determination and the high-precision neutrino oscillation parameter measurements, detecting electron anti-neutrinos emitted from two nearby (baseline of about 53 km) nuclear power plants. JUNO experiment is not only a reactor neutrino experiment for the mass hierarchy and oscillation, but also for supernova and astrophysics studies. In this seminar, I will briefly presents the physics perspectives and give a status of its construction.
