BENEATH THE GREEN, THE QUANTUM
IN PARTNERSHIP WITH YALE QUANTUM INSTITUTE
BENEATH THE GREEN, THE QUANTUM
All members of the Wright Lab community and Wright Lab summer program participants and their mentors are invited to a mid-summer pizza lunch.
In recent years, advancements in optically levitated nanoparticles have enabled the cooling of their center-of-mass motion to the quantum ground state. As a result, a nanoparticle, which comprises billions of atoms, becomes delocalized over picometer scales. This talk aims to explore the challenges and requirements of achieving a macroscopic quantum superposition of a nanoparticle, in which the center-of-mass position is delocalized over orders of magnitude larger scales.
The Wright Lab community is invited to welcome our summer student researchers with coffee, breakfast food, and casual interaction.
Energy-energy correlators (EEC) have been proposed as new powerful tools to explore the substructure of QCD jets. Compared with other tools that are used to characterize jet substructure they have the advantage of being firmly anchors in QCD, and their scale evolution is well defined and calculable in perturbative QCD. Experimental data indicate a rapid transition from a regime (at large relative angles) that is well described by perturbative parton splitting to a regime (at small relative angles) where the EECs are described by statistical emission of hadrons.
In this workshop we will cover the equipment available at the Wright Lab Advanced Prototyping Center and how to get started designing parts. Basics of CNC laser and abrasive water jet cutting will be included, as well as an introduction to 3D printing. No prior experience is required, but having an idea for a project that you may want to get started on would be great. We will start off with a classroom presentation and then have a quick tour of the facilities.
Wright Lab will host a 1-hour Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) Shop Orientation on Tuesday, June 13 at 10:00 a.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.

Given that a search on Amazon.com for books on ‘quantum theory’ returns over 10,000 hits while searching for ‘quantum physics’ returns over 20,000, one might wonder if the world needs yet another book on the subject. These numbers correspond to one book a day for 30 years, ranging from advanced mathematical treatises to books without a single equation, from deep philosophical debates between authors with different understandings of the subject, to textbooks teaching the methodology and various applications.
The visit will be an opportunity to discuss new CAEN and Nalu Scientific products.
Providing cutting edge technology for Physics and Applied Physics DAQ remains CAEN main focus. New product families became available in the past few months that can fulfill the needs of next-gen experiments in the Neutrino, Dark Matter, Gamma/Neutron Spectroscopy fields, thanks to improved technologies and innovative solutions.
The pursuit of particle physics, or any kind of discovery-driven research, requires a stable and prosperous society. Today, our society is increasingly threatened by global climate change. Human-influenced climate change has already impacted weather patterns, and global warming will only increase unless deep reductions in emissions of CO2 and other greenhouse gases are achieved.
