Neutrinos are one of the most intensively studied particles. They may originate from Earth’s atmosphere or be produced in laboratories with well-controlled beams. They are detected through their interactions with specialised instruments, and their so-called “appearance” and “disappearance” represent fascinating phenomena in contemporary particle physics, as they unveil some of the neutrinos’ most sought-after universal properties that relate to the cosmos. In this seminar, we will review some near- and far-future neutrino experiments and facilities that study neutrinos and compare their efforts to achieve the ultimate sensitivity in studying neutrino interactions.


Dr. Lu is an Associate Professor at the University of Warwick. His main research area is GeV neutrino physics. He has held leadership roles in the neutrino interaction working groups of the T2K, MINERvA, and JUNO experiments, coordinating the data analysis efforts. He is known for the development of an analysis technique called transverse kinematic imbalance, which offers a novel framework for comprehending accelerator-based neutrino interactions and shapes the next generation of experimental design and detector development. Prof. Lu contributes to the high-pressure gas TPC development for the DUNE experiment and serves as a Task Lead for the AIDAinnova project. He is also an active member of the GENIE and nuSTORM collaborations.

Prof. Lu received his BSc from Peking University and his master’s degree from the University of Hamburg. He moved to the University of Oxford as a postdoc after completing his PhD and a brief postdoc at the University of Heidelberg. He continued on to become an STFC Ernest Rutherford Fellow and a faculty member in the Department of Physics at Oxford. He joined the University of Warwick in 2021 and holds a visiting lectureship at the University of Oxford.
