I am a retired (from April 2014) physicist from the Laboratoire de
Physique des Hautes Energies de Lausanne ("LPHE"),
at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology-Lausanne (Ecole Polytechnique fédérale
From March 2003, I am invited professor at the "Filière francophone de Physique corpusculaire et Applications" of the National University of Hanoi (Vietnam).
For newcomers in Particle Physics, I may suggest the

Researches I have participated in. Our research activities are located at CERN.
It is now established that neutrinos do oscillate and, hence, that they do have mass!
Neutrino oscillation is a quantum physics phenomenon in which a neutrino created with a defined lepton flavour can be detected with a different flavour. The probability of this detection gives the so-called mixing angle and its periodicity the mass difference of the neutrinos propagation eigenstates.
The research is now focussed on the determination of the mass hierarchy and of the absolute mass scale. Possible studies of CP violation in the neutrino sector are also foreseen.
