Driving innovations in manufacturing: Open Access research from DMEM

Strathprints makes available Open Access scholarly outputs by Strathclyde's Department of Design, Manufacture & Engineering Management (DMEM).

Centred on the vision of 'Delivering Total Engineering', DMEM is a centre for excellence in the processes, systems and technologies needed to support and enable engineering from concept to remanufacture. From user-centred design to sustainable design, from manufacturing operations to remanufacturing, from advanced materials research to systems engineering.

The collective interaction of electron neutrinos with a dense non-stationary plasma is described here. This effect can eventually lead to a significant loss of energy of the neutrinos emitted by a collapsing supernova. The present effect is an exact analogue of the photon acceleration in an ionization front. We present here a classical estimate of the neutrino energy losses and also give the corresponding quantum description.
