Past Seminars



Physics and Astronomy Colloquium: "Lucy - the First to the Trojans"

Harold F. Levison (Southwest Research Institute)
- See Zoom link below

I will discuss NASA's Lucy mission.  Lucy, selected as part of NASA's Discovery Program, is the first reconnaissance of the Jupiter Trojans, objects that hold vital clues to…



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…



High Energy Physics Experimental seminar: "First results in search of an excess of electron neutrino interactions from MicroBooNE"

Chao Zhang (Brookhaven National Laboratory)
-

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.…
