Limits on the neutrino magnetic dipole moment from the luminosity function of hot white dwarfs.

MILLER BERTOLAMI M.M.

Abstract (from CDS):

Recent determinations of the white dwarf luminosity function (WDLF) from very large surveys have extended our knowledge of the WDLF to very high luminosities. This, together with the availability of new full evolutionary white dwarf models that are reliable at high luminosities, have opened the possibility of testing particle emission in the core of very hot white dwarfs, where neutrino processes are dominant. We use the available WDLFs from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey and the SuperCOSMOS Sky Survey to constrain the value of the neutrino magnetic dipole moment (µν).We used a state-of-the-art stellar evolution code to compute a grid of white dwarf cooling sequences under the assumptions of different values of µν. Then we constructed theoretical WDLFs for different values of µν and performed a χ2-test to derive constraints on the value of µν.We find that the WDLFs derived from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey and the SuperCOSMOS Sky Survey do not yield consistent results. The discrepancy between the two WDLFs suggests that the uncertainties are significantly underestimated. Consequently, we constructed a unified WDLF by averaging the SDSS and SSS and estimated the uncertainties by taking into account the differences between the WDLF at each magnitude bin. Then we compared all WDLFs with theoretical WDLFs. Comparison between theoretical WDLFs and both the SDSS and the averaged WDLF indicates that µν should be µν<5x10–12e(h/2π)/(2mec). In particular, a χ2-test on the averaged WDLF suggests that observations of the disk WDLF exclude values of µν>5x10–12e(h/2π)/(2mec) at more than a 95% confidence level, even when conservative estimates of the uncertainties are adopted. This is close to the best available constraints on µν from the physics of globular clusters.Our study shows that modern WDLFs, which extend to the high-luminosity regime, are an excellent tool for constraining the emission of particles in the core of hot white dwarfs. However, discrepancies between different WDLFs suggest there might be some relevant unaccounted systematic errors. A larger set of completely independent WDLFs, as well as more detailed studies of the theoretical WDLFs and their own uncertainties, is desirable to explore the systematic uncertainties behind this constraint. Once this is done, we believe the Galactic disk WDLF will offer constraints on the magnetic dipole moment of the neutrino similar to the best available constraints obtainable from globular clusters.

within radius arcsec The VizieR photometry tool allows for easy visualization of photometry points extracted around the Simbad position from photometry-enabled catalogues in VizieR.
The search radius has to be specified by the user. It is currently limited to a maximum of 30 arcsec. It depends mostly on the precision or quality of the coordinates (SIMBAD and VizieR catalogs), the resolution of the images from which the sources were extracted, source extent, and source crowding.
Suggestions are: crowded field: 0.5 to 1.5 arcsec, 3 arcsec otherwise; uncertain coordinates (SIMBAD quality E or coordinates without reference): 5 to 30 arsec (risky!).
