The new ultra high energy events are the key to studying ghost particles, Physicists have proposed ways to use ultra high energy neutrino data to study interactions that go beyond standard models of particle physics.
The Zee Burst model uses new data from large neutrino telescopes such as the IceCube Neutrino Observatory in Antarctica and future extensions. now the new ultra high energy events are the key to studying ghost particles.
Neutrinos captivate us again and again and expand our imagination. These “ghost particles” are understood at least in the standard model, but they are the key to what lies behind them, the researchers say. So far, all non-standard IceCube interaction studies have focused solely on low-energy neutrino data, Researcher said.
The Zee Burst mechanism provides a new tool for studying non-standard interactions using extremely high-energy neutrinos in IceCube.
Since the discovery of neutrinos two decades ago, which was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2015, scientists have made significant progress in understanding the properties of neutrinos – but many questions remain unanswered.
For example, the fact that neutrinos are so small in mass that scientists have to deal with theories that go beyond the standard model.
In such theories, neutrinos can enter into new and non-standard interactions with the material as they spread, which will have a critical impact on their precise measurements, the researchers say. so now the new ultra high energy events are the key to studying ghost particles.
In 2012, the IceCube collaboration was the first to observe extremely high-energy neutrinos from space sources. This opens a new window for studying the properties of neutrinos with the highest possible energy.
Since its discovery, IceCube has reported more than 100 extremely high-energy neutrino events.
“We soon realized that this offered a new opportunity to look for exotic particles such as partners that were too symmetrical and dark matter that was very decaying,” the researchers said.
In recent years he has sought ways to find signals for new physics at various energy scales, and has co-authored half a dozen articles exploring various possibilities.
The overall strategy that I follow in all of this work is to look for abnormal features in the spectrum of observed events which can then be interpreted as possible signs of new physics, the researchers said. The most spectacular feature is resonance: what physicists see dramatically amplifies events in a narrow energy window.
Researchers devote time to think of new scenarios that can lead to such responses.
Hence the idea for the current job.
In the standard model, ultra high-energy neutrinos can produce W bosons when resonating.
This process, known as the glass event resonance, has been observed at IceCube after preliminary results were presented at the 2018 Neutrinos conference. Non-standard neutrino interactions, the researchers said.
With this model, a scalar filled can be as light as 100 times the mass of a proton. According to Resercher, Zee’s scalar which is lightweight and charged can produce glass-like resonance in the neutrino spectrum of the IceCube Neutrino Observatory.
Because the new resonance in the Zee model contained a scalar that was loaded, they had decided to call it Zee Blast.
We need an effective exposure time of at least four times the current exposure to be sensitive enough to find new resonances, so it will take about 30 years with the current IceCube design, but only after three years of IceCube Gen 2, researchers say, citing the proposed next generation IceCube expansion with a detector volume of 10 km3.
