Wright Lab APC Workshop: Introduction to design for rapid prototyping

In this workshop we will cover how to get started designing parts for your projects that can be made simply and quickly with a CNC cutter or 3D printer. No prior experience is required, but having an idea for a project that you may want to get started on would be great.

EHS Orientation for Wright Lab Shops

Wright Lab will host two identical 1-hour Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) Shop Orientations on Tuesday, February 16 at 1:00 p.m., and Tuesday, February 23 at 2:00 p.m., both on Zoom (connection information is below). 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.

Yale Day of Data Spring Series: Language (Data) Is Everywhere! Linguistics and Language Data in Research

What kind of data do linguists use and how do they use it? Please join us for a panel that will get into the nitty gritty of linguistics data across a variety of subfields, from brain imaging to corpus analysis and beyond, moderated by Professor of Linguistics and 2020-2021 Model Research Collection Curator Claire Bowern.

Panelists:

- Robert Frank, Professor of Linguistics
- Maria Piñango, Associate Professor of Linguistics
- Natalie Weber, Assistant Professor of Linguistics
- Jim Wood, Assistant Professor of Linguistics

WIDG Seminar: Avinay Bhat, Syracuse University, "MeV Scale Physics in MicroBooNE"

This talk presents the first measurement of sub-MeV scale energy signatures and relevant backgrounds for beam neutrino interactions in MicroBooNE using a dedicated reconstruction technique. After introducing the Liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber technology and the MicroBooNE detector, I will highlight the main features of this reconstruction technique and the measurements carried out from beam neutrino data.

WIDG Seminar: Gadi Afek, Yale, "Searches for New Physics Using Levitated Optomechanics"

In an attempt to provide further insight into one of the major questions of physics beyond the standard model, new, highly sensitive, optomechanical sensors are employed utilizing techniques synchronous with those of the atomic physics community. These sensors are table-top experimental tools offering exquisite control of mechanical and electrical degrees of freedom and isolation from the environment. They enable unprecedented acceleration sensitivities for ~ng objects, while still maintaining the access needed to probe short-ranged dynamics.

NPA Zoom Seminar, Kimmy Wu, SLAC/KIPAC, "Improved Constraint on Primordial Gravitational Waves with Delensing"

Inflation generically predicts a background of primordial gravitational waves, which generate a primordial B-mode component in the polarization of the cosmic microwave background (CMB). The measurement of such a B-mode signature would lend significant support to the paradigm of inflation. Observed B modes also contain a component from the gravitational lensing of primordial E modes, which can obscure the measurement of the primordial B modes.
