Rittenhouse Lecture: "Galaxy evolution and cosmology via the 21 cm line of atomic hydrogen"

Martha Haynes (Cornell University)
- See Zoom link below

The 21 cm line of atomic hydrogen (HI) provides a powerful probe of the cool-to-warm interstellar gas in galaxies. Virtually all star-forming galaxies contain a cool neutral component…

Condensed and Living Matter Seminar: "Physical Computation in Insect Swarms"

Orit Peleg, University of Colorado
- See Zoom link below

Our world is full of living creatures that must share information to survive and reproduce. As humans, we easily forget how hard it is to communicate within natural environments. So how do organisms solve…

The MicroBooNE experiment was designed primarily to explore the nature of the previously observed low-energy excess in electron neutrino candidates in the MiniBooNE experiment located…

Condensed and Living Matter Seminar: "Postpandemic Tool for Quantum Materials (and vice-versa)"

Ken Burch, Boston College

Nov 17, 2021 - Nov 21, 2021 at - David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A8

Raman scattering, invented at the end of the last pandemic, can provide a wealth of information on the fractional, magnetic, lattice and charge excitations at the heart of quantum materials and devices.…

Astronomy and Astrophysics Seminar: Exploring the universe with gravitational waves

Valeri Vardanyan (IPMU Tokyo)
- Zoom

In this talk, I will present recent results about gravitational wave cosmology. I will argue that the spatial clustering of gravitational wave sources, when cross-correlated with galaxy catalogues,…
