QED corrections to neutrino nucleus scattering

30 Jul 2021, 11:10


Parallel session talk Neutrino Physics T04: Neutrino Physics


Ryan Plestid (University of Kentucky/Fermilab)


As neutrino physics marches towards its goal of percent-level determinations of oscillation parameters, the corresponding theory of neutrinos scattering off nuclei (detector material) must be improved and developed to a sub-percent level of precision. Large logarithms, e.g. $\log(E_\nu/m_e)$, and coherent enhancements, i.e. $Z\alpha/v$, can enhance QED corrections significantly. In this talk I will discuss Coulomb corrections in detail and comment on the importance of radiative corrections for coherent elastic neutrino nucleus scattering (CEvNS).
