Etymology[edit]

Coined by Italian physicist Enrico Fermi in 1933 from neutron + the Italian diminutive suffix -ino.

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

neutrino (plural neutrinos)

  1. An elementary particle that is classified as a lepton, and has an extremely small but nonzero mass and no electric charge. It interacts with the surroundings only via the weak force or gravitation, making it very difficult to detect.
    • 2011 September 22, Nick Collins, “Speed of light 'broken' by scientists”, in Daily Telegraph[1]:
      But researchers at the CERN lab near Geneva claim they have recorded neutrinos, a type of tiny particle, travelling faster than the barrier of 186,282 miles (299,792 kilometres) per second.
