I have made this animation explaining the phenomenon of neutrino oscillation as a part of my graduation project for my study of graphic design. The key goal of the project was to come up with a visual language to standardize the use of icons in the field of particle physics, based on the sketches of John Dalton, one of the founders of the modern atomic theory back in 1808. This animation explaining the relatively abstract phenomenon of neutrino oscillation, is one of the possible ways to use this new visual language. The analogy and text used in this animation are created by Emily Conover from the University of Chicago (weakinteractions.tumblr.com).
More information about this project and the visual language can soon be found on my portfolio: carelfransen.com (i will link to this specific graduation project as soon as i have put it online)
