NPA Seminar: Shi Qiu, Utrecht University/Nikhef, "Search for chiral magnetic effect in heavy-ion collisions with ALICE"

In high-energy heavy-ion collisions, the chiral magnetic effect (CME) is predicted to arise from the interplay of the chirality imbalance of quarks (due to QCD instantons/sphalerons) and a strong magnetic field produced in heavy ion collisions. The combined effect leads to the charge separation along the direction of the magnetic field. In this talk, I present the search for CME using the spectator-participant plane method in Pb–Pb collisions at √sNN = 5.02 TeV with ALICE.

NPA Seminar: Anders Knospe, Lehigh University, "From Light to Heavy Flavor: Using Hadrons as Probes of Ion-Ion Collisions"

Ultrarelativistic ion-ion collisions enable physicists to study the strong nuclear interaction at extreme temperatures. A wide variety of probes can be used to characterize the properties of the matter produced in such collisions. In this presentation, the speaker will discuss the many ways in which hadrons containing light (up, down, and strange) and heavy (charm and bottom) quarks can be used to examine the quark-gluon plasma and search for possible collective behavior small collision systems.

Special Physics Club: Gail Dodge, Old Dominion University, "2023 Long Range Plan for Nuclear Science"

This Special Physics Club will feature a webinar presentation of the 2023 Long Range Plan for Nuclear Science by Professor Gail Dodge, Chair of the Nuclear Science Advisory Committee (NSAC). The presentation will be followed by a Q&A with Prof. Dodge, in addition to a panel discussion by Yale Physics faculty involved in nuclear physics research. The 2023 Long Range Plan for Nuclear Science outlines the scientific priorities and opportunities for nuclear science in the US for the next decade.

NPA Seminar: Michael Wilensky, University of Manchester, "Addressing the Challenges in 21-cm Cosmology using Bayesian Inference and other Data Analysis Techniques"

Detailed measurements of 21-cm emission from neutral Hydrogen during the Epoch of Reionization will eventually enable us to tomographically map this relatively unconstrained cosmic era. Furthermore, post-reionization measurements offer an independent probe of the baryon acoustic oscillation scale, ultimately constraining the dark energy equation of state. A measurement of the 21-cm power spectrum using radio interferometers is a critical scientific target for understanding both of these eras.
