Description

The LUX-ZEPLIN (LZ) experiment is a 7 active tonne liquid xenon (LXe) time projection chamber designed primarily to search for dark matter in the form of weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs). However, due to its large LXe mass, good position and energy resolutions, low energy threshold and extremely low background rates, LZ is sensitive to a wide range of neutrino physics.
This work will present the physics reach of the LZ detector in the study of neutrino-related processes, such as the study of the electromagnetic properties of neutrinos via interaction enhancements caused by an effective neutrino magnetic moment and milicharge. The sensitivity of LZ to the two-neutrino and neutrinoless double beta decay modes of several xenon isotopes is also presented, with the latter being the current best channels to probe the Majorana nature of the neutrino.
