    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    The neutrino experiments were conducted to investigate nongravitational interactions between matter and the dark sector. It was shown that the neutrinos can exhibit different masses in matter and in vacuum, affecting the neutrino oscillations. It is found that the neutrinos could be affected by interactions in the dark sector, which are subgravitational in strength to other visible matter. This makes the neutrino mass a dynamical quantity, depending on the environment.
