Physics colloquium-“The Life and Death of the Free Neutron”

September 22, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Nadia Fomin University of Tennessee, Knoxville Abstract: Neutron beta decay is an archetype for all semi-leptonic charged-current weak processes. A precise value for the neutron lifetime is required for consistency tests of the Standard Model and is needed to predict the primordial 4He abundance from the theory of Big Bang Nucleosynthesis. Other parameters from neutron beta decay, in combination with the neutron lifetime, can be used to extract the Vud parameter in the quark mixing matrix of the Standard Model,…
