EHS Orientation for Wright Lab Shop Users - Spring 2022

Wright Lab will host 1-hour Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) Shop Orientations. 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.

WIDG Seminar, Glenn Richardson, Yale, “Charge Reconstruction and Simulation in the nEXO Experiment”

Abstract: nEXO is a proposed tonne scale liquid xenon time projection chamber which plans to search for the neutrinoless double beta decay (0vbb) of Xe-136. 0vbb is a hypothetical nuclear process in which two neutrons decay into two protons and two electrons, with the notable absence of any neutrinos. Discovery of this hypothetical phenomena would help answer several questions concerning the mass of the neutrino, such as their Majorana nature. nEXO’s proposed detector design would allow it to search for this interaction with a half-life sensitivity greater than 10^{28} yrs.

NPA Seminar, Dan Zhang, University of Maryland, “Dark Matter Search in PandaX-4T Commissioning Run”

Abstract: PandaX-4T experiment searches for dark matter particles with a dual-phase time projection chamber holding 4 tonne liquid xenon in the sensitive volume. After the lab and detector construction for more than two years at China Jinping Underground Laboratory, PandaX-4T has begun to take scientific data since the end of the year 2020. In this talk, I will give an overview of the PandaX-4T hardwares and the weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs) search with our commissioning data, including calibration, signal reconstruction and profile likelihood ratio analysis.

Wright Lab Quantum Sensing Workshop

Quantum science is one of five top priority areas identified by Yale University’s Science Strategy. Yale’s Wright Lab is exploring the applications of quantum science and sensing to tests of fundamental physics. This workshop, hosted by Wright Lab as part of Quantum Week at Yale, brings together researchers from Wright Lab, along with keynote speaker Dmitry Budker (Helmholtz Institute Mainz at Johannes Gutenberg University and University of California, Berkeley), to discuss their work and future opportunities in this field.
