12 July 2016 – The KM3NeT Collaboration congratulates João Coelho, Astroparticle and Cosmology, Paris with the award of one of the Nature Poster Prizes at the Neutrino 2016 conference, 4-9 July in London. The jury selected his poster with the title Probing new physics with atmospheric neutrinos at KM3NeT-ORCA out of more than 400 poster presentations!
With his poster, João presented the prospects of searching with the ORCA detector for new physics phenomena, such as sterile neutrinos and non-standard interactions, using atmospheric neutrinos. Among its highlights were animations presented as flipbooks and also available here. Following the award ceremony, the posters were presented in five minute summary talks in the plenary sessions.
