New neutrino data may shed light on post-Big Bang matter formation

Researchers studying the birth of the universe are getting some of the most accurate measurements to date of neutrinos, electrically neutral particles that zip about close to the speed of light. They hope that the data, obtained from the Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment, an international collaboration led by U.S. and China scientists, will reveal how matter was formed immediately after the Big Bang. Physicists from Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley are leading the U.S. team.

Physics professor Kam-Biu Luk is one of four scientists awarded the 2019 Future Science Prize, the first non-governmental Chinese science award. Along with Wang Yifang, director of the Institute for High-Energy Physics under the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Professor Luk discovered a new kind of neutrino oscillation, which might prove critical to understanding matter-antimatter asymmetry. Each award comes with $1 million.
