Astrophysics Seminar: High-resolution images of light dark matter — First results of the DAMIC-M experiment

Radomir Smida (University of Chicago)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, 4E19

The DAMIC-M experiment will exploit the sub-electron resolution capabilities of skipper charge-coupled devices (CCDs) to search for light dark matter particles in a broad range of masses from 1 eV to 10 GeV. A…

Past Astro Seminars



Astrophysics Seminar: SPHEREx: An all-sky near-infrared spectral survey

Howard Hui (Caltech)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, Center for Particle Cosmology Lounge

SPHEREx, an upcoming NASA medium-class Explorer Mission, will perform the first all-sky near infrared spectral survey. With a targeted launch date in early 2025, SPHEREx will map the entire sky at 6.2 arcsec from 0.…



Astrophysics Seminar: Synergies Between Imaging and Spectroscopic Surveys for Cosmology

- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, 4E19

Current and forthcoming sky surveys promise to deliver
datasets orders of magnitude better in quality and size than their
predecessors, but our ability to take advantage of these datasets is



Astrophysics Seminar: Constraining Galaxy Formation And Baryonic Effects On LSS With Observations Of The Thermal And Kinetic SZ Effects

Nick Battaglia (Cornell University)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, 4E19

A new window into the growth and evolution of large-scale structure has opened up with the recent observations of the thermal and kinetic Sunyaev-Zel’dovich (SZ) effects. I will…



Astrophysics Seminar: ML x Cosmology with 50 Million Galaxies

ChangHoon Hahn (Princeton University)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, 4E19

The 3D spatial distribution of galaxies encodes key cosmological information that can be used to probe the nature of dark energy and measure the sum of neutrino masses. The next…
