Photon vs Photoneutrino - What's the difference?

photon | photoneutrino |


As nouns the difference between photon and photoneutrino

is that photon is (particle) the quantum of light and other electromagnetic energy, regarded as a discrete particle having zero rest mass, no electric charge, and an indefinitely long lifetime it is a gauge boson while photoneutrino is (physics) a neutrino that is produced (along with an antineutrino) when a high-energy photon collides with an electron.
