Title: Dijets for hipsters and the light dark matter connection

Speaker: Nhan Tran, Fermilab
 

Abstract: Searching for new physics in dijets at hadron colliders is a classic well-motivated strategy. However, as the LHC settles into a long period of data-taking at 13 TeV, improvements to the traditional search program are incremental. I will present new techniques to greatly extend the dijet search phase space to regions unexplored since the 1980s. I will also detail how such searches have a connection to dark matter searches at the LHC. Finally, I will talk more generally about extending searches for light thermal dark matter to the MeV-GeV range and new experimental approaches such as the proposed LDMX (Light Dark Matter eXperiment).

Title: Quantum dynamics and transport in an atomic BEC with Raman-induced synthetic band structure and spin orbit coupling

Speaker: Yong Chen, Purdue University

Abstract: Raman scattering and coupling are widely used optical techniques to study diverse physical systems ranging from atoms, molecules to nanomaterials and solids. Raman coupling between atoms of different internal quantum states (“spins”) and different momenta have been recently employed as a powerful tool to modify the energy-momentum kinetic energy dispersion of atoms to induce “synthetic” bandstructures, gauge fields and spin-orbit-coupling (SOC) for ultracold atoms. In my lab, we have employed a Rubdium-87 atomic Bose-Einstein condensates (BEC) in such Raman-induced synthetic spin-orbit-coupled bandstructures to study various quantum dynamics and quantum transport phenomena, including tunable and time-resolved Landau-Zener interband transitions, spin-resolved atomic beam splitter and Stuckelberg interferometer in momentum space, and relaxation of spin current via collision and thermalization of colliding spinor BECs. Experiments on spin-orbit coupled quantum gases may provide a well-controlled playground of interests to both AMO physics (scattering and few-body processes) and condensed matter physics (superfluidity, quantum transport, and topological states).

Title: Disconnecting structure and dynamics in glassy thin films

Speaker: Daniel Sussman, Syracuse University

Abstract: The dynamics near the surface of a glassy film are markedly different from those in the bulk. We investigate whether the differences between surface and bulk dynamics in a polymeric glassformer can be explained by differences in local microscopic structure. We show that machine learning methods that successfully identify strong correlations between local structure and particle rearrangement dynamics in the bulk completely fail to detect key aspects of thin-film glassy dynamics. Furthermore, we show that no combination of local structural features drawn from a very general set of two- and multi-point functions is able to distinguish between particles at the center of film and those in near the surface where the dynamics are strongly perturbed. We note that the behavior of glassy films has often been interpreted via a model with a glassy, immobile layer near the center of the film and liquid-like mobile layers near free interfaces. Our results suggest that the two populations are indistinguishable in structure, necessitating a purely dynamical theory for additional relaxation processes in the film.

Title: Mind the Gap: A new Kind of Fingering Instability in Colloidal Rollers

Speaker: Michelle Driscoll, New York University

Abstract: When colloidal particles are rotated adjacent to nearby floor, strong advective flows are generated around them, even quite far away. When a group of these microrollers is driven, the strong hydrodynamic coupling between particles leads to formation of new structures: an initially uniform front of microrollers evolves first into a shock-like structure, which then quickly becomes unstable, emitting fingers of a well-defined wavelength. Our experiments and simulations confirm that this instability is quite different than typical fingering instabilities, where size scale selection is a consequence of competing stresses. Here, the instability arises only due to hydrodynamic interactions, and it is controlled by a single geometric parameter, the particle-floor gap. We have developed a simplified continuum model that reproduces the instability behavior. This model confirms that this instability is a direct consequence of the inward flows created by the interactions between the particles and the nearby solid surface.

Title: High-precision physics and chemistry with ultracold diatomic molecules

Speaker: Tanya Zelevinsky


Abstract: Simple molecules at ultracold temperatures can now be manipulated with quantum optical techniques that have been developed for atomic gases. The molecules, however, present us with profoundly distinctive properties, many of which arise from their higher density of states. Furthermore, molecules can be sensitive to different aspects of fundamental physical laws than atoms are. Here we show how a combination of molecular spectroscopy in the style of optical atomic clocks and modern quantum chemistry explain many bizarre properties of loosely bound molecules, shed light on the quantum aspects of the most basic chemical reactions, and promise to advance table-top fundamental physics in new directions.

Title: Chemical structures in planet-forming disks

Speaker: Karin Oberg, Harvard Smithsonian 

Abstract: Exo-planets are common, and they span a large range of compositions. The origins of this compositional diversity are largely unconstrained. Among planets that are Earth-like, a second question is how often such planets form hospitable to life. A fraction of exo-planets are observed to be ‘physically habitable’, i.e. of the right temperature and bulk composition to sustain a water-based prebiotic chemistry. This does not automatically imply, however, that they are rich in the building blocks of life, in organic molecules of different sizes and kinds, i.e. that they are chemically habitable. In this talk I will argue that characterizing the chemistry of protoplanetary disks, the formation sites of planets, is key to address both the origins of planetary bulk compositions and the likelihood of finding organic matter on planets. The most direct path to constrain the chemistry in disks is to directly observe it. In the age of ALMA it is for the first time possible to image the chemistry of planet formation, to determine locations of disk snowlines, and to map the distributions of different organic molecules. Recent ALMA highlights include constraints on CO snowline locations, the discovery of spectacular chemical ring systems, and first detections of more complex organic molecules. Observations can only provide chemical snapshots, however, and even ALMA is blind to the majority of the chemistry that shapes planet formation. To interpret observations and address the full chemical complexity in disks requires models, both toy models and astrochemical simulations. These models in turn must be informed by laboratory experiments, some of which will be shown in this talk. It is thus only when we combine observational, theoretical and experimental constraints that we can hope to characterize the chemistry of disks, and further, the chemical compositions of nascent planets.

Tigran Kalaydzhyan: Testing gravity on accelerators

February 6, 2017, 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Title: Testing gravity on accelerators

Speaker: Tigran Kalaydzhyan, CALTECH
 

Abstract: Weak equivalence principle (WEP) is one of the cornerstones of the
modern theories of gravity, stating that the trajectory of a freely
falling test body is independent of its internal structure and
composition. Even though WEP is known to be valid for the usual
matter, it has never been experimentally confirmed for antimatter and
relativistic matter. We make an attempt to constrain possible
deviations from WEP utilizing the modern accelerator technologies. We
analyze the (absence of) vacuum Cherenkov radiation, photon decay and
anomalous synchrotron losses at the Large Electron-Positron Collider
(LEP) and at Tevatron to put limits on a difference between the
gravitational and inertial masses of the relativistic
electrons/positrons. Our main result is the 0.1% upper limit on the
mentioned difference. I will further explain how this figure can be
improved with the analysis of a high-energy Compton scattering at the
future International Linear Collider (ILC). The talk is based on the
following publications,

Speaker: Dan Werthimer, Berkeley

Host: Farhad Zadeh

Abstract: 

What is the possibility of other intelligent life in the universe? Can we detect radio, infrared, or optical signals from other civilizations? Current and future SETI projects, including the new $100-million Breakthrough Prize Foundation Listen project, may provide an answer. Berkeley SETI Research Center chief scientist Dan Werthimer will describe the rationale for past and future searches and will show how new technologies are revolutionizing SETI.

Dan will also describe the SETI@home project, which analyzes data from the world's largest radio telescope using desktop computers and cell phones from millions of volunteers. SETI@home participants have formed one of Earth's most powerful supercomputers. Volunteers have the small but captivating possibility their computer will detect the first signal from a civilization beyond Earth.
