Neutrino spectrum

  1. Is there something like a "neutrino spectrum"?.
    Would it be analog to light spectrum?.
    Sorry for the ignorance, just curious.

    Best regards,

    Neutrinos have different energies, just like photons have different energies. But we don't give them different names depending on their energies, like we do with photons (gamma-ray, X-ray, etc.).

    Neutrinos also come in 3 different flavors, but that's not really analogous to the photon spectrum...
  5. As jtbell implies, there is such a thing for every particle. E.g. people look for dark matter by measuring the energy spectra of electrons and positrons hitting a box strapped to the side of the international space station.
