Researchers have revealed that neutrinos can interact with photons, the fundamental particles of light and other electromagnetic radiation, in ways not previously detected
Neutrinos are one of the most mysterious fundamental particles of matter. They are extremely difficult to study because they barely interact at all with other particles.
The researchers have revealed how neutrinos and photons can be induced to interact in the uniform magnetic fields of the extremely large scale-as large as 103 km-found in the form of matter known as plasma, which occurs around stars
The research has implications for our understanding of solar physics.
The researchers plan to continue their work in search of deeper insights, especially in connection with energy transfer between neutrinos and photons under these extreme conditions.
This research is important for our understanding of the fundamental forces of nature and their role in the universe.
This research is still in its early stages, but it has the potential to revolutionize our understanding of neutrinos and their interactions
The research was conducted by Kenzo Ishikawa, Professor Emeritus at Hokkaido University, and Yutaka Tobita, lecturer at Hokkaido University of Science.
The research was funded by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science.
