A neutrino of the type associated with the tau particle.
- Neutrinos come in three varieties, each associated with an electron-like lepton: the electron neutrino, the muon neutrino and the tau neutrino.
- Over time, the quantum waves that accompany the different flavors get out of step, and an electron neutrino seems to morph into a muon neutrino or a tau neutrino and back again.
- Opera researchers are concentrating their efforts on the oscillation between the muon and tau neutrino.
