Using supernova neutrinos to probe proton strangeness Bhavesh Chauhan, Ph.D.; University of Iowa The strange quarks' contribution to proton's spin is poorly determined from current experiments. Neutrino-proton elastic scattering is a promising channel to measure this, but requires an intense source of low-energy neutrinos and a low-threshold detector with excellent resolution. In this talk, I will discuss my proposal to determine the proton strangeness using neutrinos from the next galacti...
