Physics Undergraduate Event: Physics Major Information Session

Do you wonder about the difference between the physics major and the intensive version? Do you have questions about the definition of an advanced elective, or what the senior requirement entails? If you have these, or any other questions about the physics major, please join DUS Sarah Demers for an info session at which she’ll describe the major and answer your questions. We’ll serve cookies!

NPA Seminar: Seb Jones, UCL, "The QTNM collaboration: a project for absolute neutrino mass measurement"

The observation of neutrino oscillations provides proof of non-zero neutrino masses, something which was not predicted in the minimal Standard Model. However, these same neutrino oscillation experiments do not provide information on the absolute scale of the neutrino masses, which remain unknown. The neutrino masses are most directly accessed through those experiments which measure the shape of the beta-decay energy spectrum.

YPPDO Workshop: Plan and Manage Your Career Development with Jacob Gonzalez

Join us for this introduction to the many ways OCS can support your career and professional development! We will discuss useful strategies and review important resources that can help you jump-start your career planning. You will also learn how to build a strong and diverse professional network - it’s never too early or too late to start! By connecting with alums and other professionals, you can gain important insights into career paths, advice about organizations and roles, and even valuable leads by tapping into the “hidden” job market.

WIDG Seminar: Bianka Meçaj, Yale, "Jet Substructure with Energy Correlators"

Many New Physics searches and QCD precision measurements at particle colliders involve the study of jet substructure for final state hadrons. Recently it has been understood that measuring correlation functions of energy flow operators inside a jet can be a very powerful tool for phenomenology, which naturally stems from first principles of quantum field theory. In this talk I will present a bridge between the vast theoretical progress made to understand the energy correlators from the field theory perspective and their practical implementation into the real world of hadron colliders.

Kimball Smith Series: The Science and Ethics of Autonomous Warfare

Join us for a moderated panel followed by small group discussions on the topic of autonomy and artificial intelligence in warfare. The panel will feature Ian Abraham (Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering & Materials Science at Yale and leader of the Intelligent Autonomy Lab) and Michael Butera (Policy Advisor in the Bureau of Political-Military Affairs at the U.S. Department of State).

WIDG Seminar: Xiran Bai, Yale, "Expanding the mass range for axion searches through quantum measurement and cavity innovation with HAYSTAC experiment."

Axion is a well-motivated hypothetical particle originally proposed to solve the Strong CP problem in quantum chromodynamics (QCD), and sufficiently light axion may also be a dark matter candidate. The Haloscope At Yale Sensitive To Axion CDM (HAYSTAC) experiment is actively searching for axion cold dark matter using a resonant microwave cavity and quantum squeezed state receiver (SSR). With axion mass and coupling strength unknown, a crucial metric is the scanning rate across its parameter space. Advancements in SSR have led to a doubling of this scanning rate.
