Introduction Neutrinos are massive, but active neutrino masses are tiny, < O(1) eV The simplest mechanism is type-I seesaw. “Natural” scale for

3 Q. Is there a chance to “observe” the right-handed neutrino? Ex. C.f. Right-handed neutrino mass can be O(100) GeV, but, …..

4 Left-right neutrino mixing: Ex. Negligibly small to create the Majorana neutrino at the collider.

5 Q. Is it possible to make the left-right mixing large enough to detect the existence of the right-handed neutrino? A. Yes, if generation structure is taken into account.
