Elusives Journal Club, Yu-Han Tseng, Yale, "Direct detection of classically undetectable dark matter through quantum decoherence"

Yu-Han Tseng will lead a discussion on the paper “Direct detection of classically undetectable dark matter through quantum decoherence,” found at https://arxiv.org/pdf/1212.3061.pdf

Members in the departments of physics and astronomy who work on dark matter and neutrino-related fields are invited to get together to discuss papers related to their field. Topics include: neutrinos, dark matter, BSM physics, fundamental symmetries, precision physics and more.

Wright Lab All Hands Meeting: Welcome, Summer Programs Recap, and Next Generation Network at Wright Lab

The Wright Lab community is invited to a weekly meeting on Mondays at 9:30 a.m. in WL-216 to hear about and discuss what is going on at the lab.

This week we will welcome new lab members, hear a brief recap of Wright Lab’s summer programs, and hear about the Next Generation Network migration at Wright Lab.

Wright Lab Resources Presentation

We invite members of our community, in particular new members, to an overview presentation about Wright Lab resources. The program includes introductions of Wright Lab technical and administrative staff, an overview of program activities for the Fall, a safety briefing for the community, and brief presentations about the facility’s resources.

Fall 2023 EHS Orientation for Wright Lab Research Shop Users

Wright Lab will host two, identical 1-hour Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) Shop Orientations on Thursday, September 7 at 1 p.m. and Tuesday, September 12 at 2:30 p.m. The EHS shop orientation is offered each semester and is required to be taken once by anyone who would like to gain access and make use of the research and teaching shops at Wright Lab.

NPA Seminar: Carlos Peña Garay, Laboratorio Subterraneo de Canfranc, "Science in an Underground Lab"

Nuclear, particle and astrophysics are the themes of experiments hosted in underground labs. I will discuss, after motivated by fundamental questions, recent work done in Canfranc. Most of my talk will be concentrated on the exploration of neutrinos’ fundamental properties in nuclear and particle physics, astrophysics and cosmology, but I will also discuss current work on dark matter searches. Our cells are ionized by cosmic muons and radioactivity and I will briefly close with research on life processes in cosmic silence.

2023 Summer Student Research Symposium

Please join us to hear what our student researchers have been doing this summer.
AGENDA:
Forrest Hutchison (Charlie Baltay),”Magnitude Calibration of Supernovae from the LSQ/LCO Collaboration”
Florence Polak (David Rabinowitz),”Coadding QUEST Data in Search of Treasure in the Sky”
Selma Mazioud (Helen Caines),”Statistical Hadronization Model Calculations of Charm Hadron Production in Relativistic Heavy Ion Collisions at the LHC”
Joshua Kerner & Mary Zhang Remote (Helen Caines),”ePIC LFHCal R&D”

NPA Seminar: Jonghee Yoo, Seoul National University, "Searching for invisible axion dark matter with an 18T magnet haloscope"

Astrophysical observation indicates that 68% of the Universe is made up of dark energy, 27% is dark matter, and the rest 5% is ordinary matter. Therefore, probing the dark components of the Universe is the most prominent subject in modern particle physics. One of the strong candidates of dark matter is the hypothetical particle called axions. The axion has been postulated to solve the strong-CP problem in quantum chromodynamics. The axion is also an ideal dark matter candidate who would have been produced during the Big Bang.
