Experimental Particle Physics: Higgs in a boost: First measurement of VH in full hadronic final state with the ATLAS detector

Zhi Zheng (SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, 2C6

The discovery of the Higgs boson marked a cornerstone in particle physics, completing the Standard Model. Yet, its interactions, especially at high energies, offer a gateway to potential new physics. This talk…

Experimental Particle Physics: Search for leptonic CP Violation: Insights from the contemporary experiments

Zoya Vallari (Caltech)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, 3W2

Once an unlikely hypothesis not foreseen by the Standard Model, the existence of non-zero neutrino mass is now a well-accepted, experimentally verified fact. The extraordinary smallness of the neutrino mass and the…

Condensed and Living Matter Seminar: Hybrid superconducting photonic circuits and quantum frequency conversion

Hong Tang (Yale University)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A8

Microwave-to-optical converters represent an indispensable component for quantum networks. Integrating photonics with superconductors is challenging because optical excitations…

High Energy Theory Seminar: Perturbations of Gibbons-Maeda Black Holes in Einstein-Maxwell-Dilaton Theories

Christopher Pope (Texas A&M University)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, 3W2

The study of perturbations around black hole backgrounds in general relativity and Einstein-Maxwell theory has a long history, going back to Regge and Wheeler in the 1950s. In view of more recent developments in…

Astrophysics seminar: "TBA"

Condensed and Living Matter Seminar: Topology, Spin and Orbital in DNA-type Chiral Quantum Materials

Binghai Yan (Weizmann Institute of Science)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A8

In chemistry and biochemistry, chirality represents the structural asymmetry characterized by non-superimposable mirror images for a material like DNA. In physics, however, chirality commonly refers…

High Energy Theory Seminar: Testing Beyond Slow-Roll Inflation Across Large and Small Cosmic Scales

Matteo Braglia (NYU)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, 3W2

Inflation is widely recognized as the leading theory for explaining the origin of the Big Bang. While the simplest slow-roll models predict a nearly scale-invariant spectrum of primordial density perturbations,…
