We observe a universe filled with matter, and relatively little anti-matter. One condition for this lack of anti-matter is a possible difference in how matter and anti-matter interact. This effect, called Charge-Parity (CP) violation has been observed at a small level by quarks, and measured accurately at particle colliders. Recent and future neutrino experiments are looking for this effect in the lepton sector. Recent measurements show hints that it may exist. This talk will highlight the recent excitement in the neutrino physics community that is looking for this effect.
Dr. Jamieson has a PhD from the University of British Columbia with a thesis on the precise measurement of the assymetry in decay of muons using the TWIST detector at TRIUMF. His first post-doc was on the nobel prize winning SNO experiment, that solved the thirty year long solar neutrino problem. His second post-doc, and current research was on the Tokai to Kamoka experiment, where neutrinos are produced in an intense beam on one side of Japan, detected nearby, and again 295km away at the Super-Kamokande experiment.
