Summary: ULB Seminar: David Delepine - "Majorana vs Dirac neutrino scattering and its applications"
Description: Abstract: It is well known that Majorana neutrinos have a pure axial neutral current interaction while Dirac neutrinos have the standard vector-axial interaction. In spite of this crucial difference, usually Dirac neutrino processes differ from Majorana processes by a term proportional to the neutrino mass, resulting in almost unmeasurable observations of this difference. In the present talk, we show that once the neutrino polarization evolution is considered, there are clear differences between Dirac and Majorana scattering on electrons. The change of polarization can be achieved in astrophysical environments with strong magnetic fields. We apply this property to the Sun and its magnetic field. Using a model for the magnetic field of the Sun, it is shown that the number of 7Be solar neutrino events detected by the Borexino Collaboration can be used to set a new upper bound for the neutrino magnetic moment of μν<1.4×10−13μB.
