Tommy O'Donnell to Join CNP as Its Newest Faculty Member

Tommy O'Donnell of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory is joing this Virgina Tech Physics Department this fall, as its newest faculty member. Prof. O'Donnell is an expert on searches for neutrinoless double beta-decay, a potential, yet still unobserved phenomenon, which if observed would indicate that neutrinos are their own antiparticles, also known as Majorana particles. Prof. O'Donnell is a member of two collaborations searching for this affect: KamLAND-Zen located in Japan's Kamioka Underground Laboratory and CUORE located in Italy's Gran Sasso National Laboratory.
