Wright Lab Undergraduate Summer Research Symposium 2021

Please join us for Wright Lab’s 2021 Summer Undergraduate Research Symposium to hear what our undergraduate researchers have been doing this summer.
This event is planned to be held in a hybrid mode (both in-person in WL-216 and on Zoom), according to University policies.
A full agenda is TBA, but our summer researchers include:
Jian Chen (Helen Caines)
Sarah Dickson (Dave Moore)
Marvin Durogene (Keith Baker)
Sophia Getz (Reina Maruyama)
Annie Giman (Reina Maruyama)
Robert Howard (Charlie Baltay)

EHS Orientation for Wright Lab Research Shop Users - Summer 2021

Wright Lab will host 1-hour Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) Shop Orientations all on Zoom. 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.
For more information on the shop facilities at Wright Lab see: https://wlab.yale.edu/facilities

WIDG Seminar: Anthony Hodges, Georgia State, "Quantifying Properties of the Quark-Gluon Plasma via Jet Modification"

The study of jet modification is a critical tool for understanding the properties of the hot, dense medium created in ultra-relativistic heavy ion collisions known as the Quark-Gluon Plasma. Jets are collimated sprays of energetic particles that result from the fragmentation of hard-scattered partons. However, in heavy-ion collisions, the partons that create these jets traverse the QGP medium, losing energy either by interaction with the internal color field, or by collisions with the other constituents of the medium.

NPA Zoom Seminar (Note special date), Pranava Teja Surukuchi, Yale University, "Latest Results from the CUORE Experiment"

The Cryogenic Underground Observatory for Rare Events (CUORE) is the first bolometric experiment searching for 0νββ decay that has been able to reach the one-tonne mass scale. The detector, located at the LNGS in Italy, consists of an array of 988 TeO2 crystals arranged in a compact cylindrical structure of 19 towers. CUORE began its first physics data run in 2017 at a base temperature of about 10 mK and in April 2021 released its 3rd result of the search for 0νββ, corresponding to a tonne-year of TeO2 exposure.

WIDG Seminar, Samuel Hedges, Duke University, "Experimental Tests of Low Energy Neutrino-Nucleus Interactions at the Spallation Neutron Source"

The intense flux of neutrinos produced at the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) make it an ideal location to pursue studies of low energy neutrino-nucleus interactions. The COHERENT experiment has deployed a suite of detectors to the SNS to measure coherent elastic neutrino-nucleus scattering (CEvNS), a standard model process predicted more than forty years ago but only recently observed. CEvNS plays an important role in the evolution of a supernova, is a background for WIMP searches, and has potential applications for monitoring reactor neutrinos.
