A team of physicists has built the world’s smallest neutrino detector to observe for the first time what’s known as coherent elastic neutrino-nucleus scattering, which occurs when the ghostly neutrino particle bumps off of the nucleus of an atom. Juan Collar, a professor of physics at the University of Chicago, discusses the elusive interaction, a “neutrino radio” and future uses for the detector.
