Visualize Science 2022: Quantum Edition

Artists and scientists with a Yale affiliation are invited to participate in the second annual competition, held at the Yale Wright Laboratory, for teams of artists and scientists to collaborate and create a conceptual model of a quantum concept (to be revealed at the start of the competition) and realize it in either two- or three-dimensional format using materials provided for the competition. This event is part of the programming for Quantum Week at Yale.

NPA Seminar, Steven Murray, Arizona State University, "Forward Modelling Interferometric Observations of the EoR"

Abstract: 21cm observations of the Cosmic Dawn and Epoch of Reionization, via intensity mapping at z>6, offer a unique and exciting probe into the physics of stellar and galaxy formation and even cosmology. A range of instruments across the globe, including the highly targeted HERA experiment, are currently amassing a wealth of data – in which is buried the signature of the birth of the first stars.

NPA Seminar, Akash Dixit, University of Chicago, "Searching for dark matter with superconducting qubits"

Abstract: Detection mechanisms for low mass bosonic dark matter candidates, such the axion or hidden photon, leverage potential interactions with electromagnetic fields, whereby the dark matter (of unknown mass) on rare occasion converts into a single photon. Current dark matter searches operating at microwave frequencies use a resonant cavity to coherently accumulate the field sourced by the dark matter and a near standard quantum limited (SQL) linear amplifier to read out the cavity signal.

NPA Seminar, Christopher Swank, CalTech, “Advanced Critical Spin Dressing”

Abstract: The neutron electric dipole moment (nEDM) experiment at the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) will measure the nEDM via interaction with Helium-3. Ultimate sensitivity will be reached in that apparatus by using the critical spin dressing technique. Critical spin dressing is the application of an off-resonant oscillatory field that dresses the neutron and Helium-3 spins to have the same effective Larmor precession. Advanced critical spin dressing techniques are in development that can provide high sensitivity measurements of magnetic field gradients with a large dynamic range.

NPA Seminar, Simon Foreman, Perimeter Institute, "Detection of Cosmological 21cm Emission with CHIME"

Abstract: Intensity mapping of redshifted 21cm emission from neutral hydrogen holds great promise for learning about cosmology, as it provides an efficient way to map large volumes of the universe without the need to characterize individual luminous sources. The Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME) is a cylinder telescope located in Western Canada that was custom-built for this purpose, and that has collected several hundred days’ worth of data since it reached full observational capacity in late 2018.

WIDG Seminar, London Cooper-Troendle, Yale, “Extraction of an Inclusive Muon Neutrino Charged Current Differential Cross Section at MicroBooNE”

The MicroBooNE detector is a Liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber (LArTPC) located along the Booster Neutrino Beam (BNB) at Fermilab. One of its key physics goals is the measurement of neutrino-Argon interaction cross sections. Due to the detector’s fully active volume as well as its capability to offer a high-efficiency neutrino event selection, MicroBooNE is well suited produce the first ever triple-differential neutrino-Argon cross section.

The Kimball Smith Series, Sasha Brown, Marynel Vázquez, Wendall Wallach, "AI Ethics on the Global Stage"

AI Ethics on the Global Stage
Join us on Tuesday, November 30th, 2021 at 4 PM in Watson Center (WTS) A74 for a moderated panel followed by small group discussions about artificial intelligence in the contemporary global climate.
The panel will feature experts Wendall Wallach (Interdisciplinary Center for Bioethics), Sasha Brown (World Fellows Program) and Marynel Vázquez (Interactive Machines Group).
Attendees will learn about how AI works and is applied, key recent innovations, current ethical questions, and AI’s impact on the global economy and politics.
