Neutrinos: The Most Abundant, Yet Mysterious, Particles

Abstract: Neutrinos are the most abundant elementary particles in the universe. However, many of their properties, like their absolute mass and mass order, remain unknown. Moreover, a series of experimental anomalies in the neutrino sector hint at new physics phenomena beyond the Standard Model of particle physics. In order to dig deeper into neutrino physics and address the experimental anomalies, the next generation of neutrino experiments adopts the Liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber (LArTPC) detector technology. LArTPCs can provide very high-resolution snapshots of neutrino interactions with matter and offer several opportunities to study physics in the neutrino sector and beyond. In this talk, I will review the open questions regarding neutrinos, and then focus on the Short-Baseline Neutrino program at Fermilab, a program that offers a unique opportunity to study neutrinos and the observed anomalies.
