The JUNO observatory, a 20 kt liquid scintillator detector to be completed in 2022 in China, belongs to the next-generation of neutrino detectors, which share the common features of having a multi-ton scale and an energy resolution at unprecedented levels.
Beside the ambitious goal of neutrino mass ordering determination, the JUNO Collaboration plans also to perform a wide series of other measurements in the neutrino and astroparticle fields, rare processes and searches for new physics. The detector characteristics will allow the detection of neutrinos from many sources, like supernovae, the Sun, atmospheric and geoneutrinos. Other potential studies accessible to JUNO include the search for exotic processes, such as nucleon decays, Dark Matter and magnetic monopoles interactions, light sterile neutrinos production.
This talk will review the potential of JUNO about non-oscillation physics, highlighting the unique contributions that the experiment will give to the various fields in the forthcoming years.
