Detecting Relic Neutrinos from the Big Bang

by Andi Tan (Princeton University)


Neutrinos produced in the early moments of the Big Bang are believed to be the second most abundant particle in the Universe. PTOLEMY is an experiment for detecting relic neutrinos captured on tritium targets to map the flux of neutrinos on the sky. The challenges of  ultra-cold relic neutrino detection have led to new advances in material technologies, RF detection, and a transverse drift electromagnetic spectrometer.  The current status and outlook of PTOLEMY are presented.
