Responsible coordinator of the module PH1421 is Lothar Oberauer.
Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions
Seminar talks by students on current topics in the field of research.
Borexino/SOX for solar neutrino spectroscopy and the search for sterile neutrino oscillations
JUNO (Jiangmen Underground Neutrino Observatory) for mass hierarchy determination and the precise measurement of the oscillation parameter theta_12
After successful participation in the module the student can use the basic methods of literature retrieval, condense their knowlegde from scientific papers into a presentation and obtain presentation skills.
They have learned about recent topics in the field of research.
