Science Mag Uses Efremenko Neutrino Discovery As Cover Story

Science magazine featured as its cover story the neutrino discovery of a team of scientists including Yuri Efremenko, a professor of physics.

After more than a year of operation at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the COHERENT experiment, using the world’s smallest neutrino detector, found a big fingerprint of the elusive, electrically neutral particles that interact only weakly with matter. The research, performed at ORNL’s Spallation Neutron Source, provides compelling evidence for a neutrino interaction process predicted by theorists 43 years ago, but never seen.

Numerous news outlets nationally and internationally highlighted the research. Learn more about the research and the widespread media coverage on the Department of Physics and Astronomy’s website.
