Visualize Science 2022: Quantum Edition

Artists and scientists with a Yale affiliation are invited to participate in the second annual competition, held at the Yale Wright Laboratory, for teams of artists and scientists to collaborate and create a conceptual model of a quantum concept (to be revealed at the start of the competition) and realize it in either two- or three-dimensional format using materials provided for the competition. This event is part of the programming for Quantum Week at Yale.

NPA Seminar, Christopher Swank, CalTech, “Advanced Critical Spin Dressing”

Abstract: The neutron electric dipole moment (nEDM) experiment at the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) will measure the nEDM via interaction with Helium-3. Ultimate sensitivity will be reached in that apparatus by using the critical spin dressing technique. Critical spin dressing is the application of an off-resonant oscillatory field that dresses the neutron and Helium-3 spins to have the same effective Larmor precession. Advanced critical spin dressing techniques are in development that can provide high sensitivity measurements of magnetic field gradients with a large dynamic range.

NPA Seminar, Simon Foreman, Perimeter Institute, "Detection of Cosmological 21cm Emission with CHIME"

Abstract: Intensity mapping of redshifted 21cm emission from neutral hydrogen holds great promise for learning about cosmology, as it provides an efficient way to map large volumes of the universe without the need to characterize individual luminous sources. The Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME) is a cylinder telescope located in Western Canada that was custom-built for this purpose, and that has collected several hundred days’ worth of data since it reached full observational capacity in late 2018.

WIDG Seminar, London Cooper-Troendle, Yale, “Extraction of an Inclusive Muon Neutrino Charged Current Differential Cross Section at MicroBooNE”

The MicroBooNE detector is a Liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber (LArTPC) located along the Booster Neutrino Beam (BNB) at Fermilab. One of its key physics goals is the measurement of neutrino-Argon interaction cross sections. Due to the detector’s fully active volume as well as its capability to offer a high-efficiency neutrino event selection, MicroBooNE is well suited produce the first ever triple-differential neutrino-Argon cross section.
