Title: Electric Dipole Moment searches and small magnetic fields

Speaker: Peter Fierlinger, Technical University Munich

 

Abstract: Since several decades people search for an electric dipole moment (EDM) of a fundamental system, an unambiguous manifestation of parity (P) and time reversal symmetry (T) violation. Assuming the conservation of CPT, T violation in a fundamental system also means CP violation. This has only been observed in very few systems in the Standard Model of particle physics (SM) as a tiny effect. However, it would be needed in much larger quantities to help explain the matter-antimatter asymmetry in the Universe. With a long history of innovation and persistence, the neutron EDM dn is now limited to below 3·10^−26 e·cm, an extraordinarily small number, corresponding to an energy resolution of 10^-22 eV. The effort to develop a next generation of the neutron EDM searches triggered a variety of technologic advances. A particularly critical aspect is the quality of ultra-low magnetic fields, which has been notably advanced over the last years. In my talk I will present the PanEDM experiment at ILL Grenoble and its perspectives, and then focus on developments related to small and stable magnetic fields and their applications emerging in fundamental physics, like dark matter searches, particle interferometry, but also medical imaging and industrial applications.


Title: The emergence of quenched galaxies in the era of JWST

Speaker: Christina Williams, University of Arizona

Host: Wen-fai Fong

Abstract: The cessation of star-formation in galaxies remains poorly understood, despite being one of the most influential events in galaxy evolution. It is now known that high stellar mass density is strongly associated with this process at z~2-3, but the reason for this association is also poorly understood. Does high stellar density have a causal link with quenching, or is it a side effect of rapid growth in the early Universe? I will present new spectroscopic studies of stellar ages, molecular gas content, and feedback signatures that collectively provide evidence in favor of the latter scenario: compact galaxies grow fast in the first few billion years, but their high stellar density does not directly cause quenching. Understanding the early evolutionary development of the first quenched galaxies at z>3 is a major science goal of the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), and I will discuss how future extragalactic surveys with this groundbreaking facility will resolve outstanding questions about their formation scenarios. In particular, I will talk about surveys that are planned as part of the Guaranteed Time Observations (GTO) and our predictions for the science results we expect from JWST Cycle 1.

Title: Macroscopic Scale Atom Interferometry: Techniques and Fundamental Physics Applications

Speaker: Tim Kovachy, Stanford University

 

Abstract: Light-pulse atom interferometry—which uses optical pulses to split, recombine, and interfere quantum mechanical atomic matter waves—is a sensitive method for measuring inertial forces, making it a valuable tool for a broad set of fundamental physics tests. The sensitivity of an atom interferometer scales with its enclosed spacetime area, which is proportional to the product of the maximum spatial separation reached between the two interferometer paths and the interferometer duration. Motivated by this scaling, we have realized atom interferometers that cover macroscopic scales in space (tens of centimeters) and in time (multiple seconds).

I will discuss the experimental techniques that enable macroscopic scale interferometers, and I will explain how we use these interferometers for fundamental tests of gravity and of quantum mechanics. I will describe how these interferometers test wave-particle duality in a new regime in which massive objects are delocalized over the distance and time scales of everyday life, and I will present the first observation of the effect of spacetime curvature across the wavefunction of a single quantum system. This observation has been described as the first true manifestation of gravity in a quantum system, making it an important step in studying the interplay between gravity and quantum mechanics. Additionally, I will show recent results from a dual species interferometer for a dramatically improved atomic test of the equivalence principle. To conclude, I will discuss future directions for fundamental physics tests with macroscopic scale interferometers.

Danny Milisavljevic: Reverse Engineering Supernovae

February 23, 2018, 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Title: Reverse Engineering Supernovae

Speaker: Danny Milisavljevic, Purdue University

Abstract: Core-collapse supernovae mark the catastrophic deaths of massive stars and are among the most powerful explosions in the universe. They shape and enrich their host galaxies; produce a variety of exotic objects including neutron stars, black holes, and some gamma-ray bursts; are a major site of nucleosynthesis and dust; are prodigious emitters of neutrinos; and are likely to be strong Galactic sources of gravitational waves.


I will review how radio-through-X-ray investigations of the entire supernova life cycle -- from progenitor star, to explosion, to remnant -- are helping to “reverse engineer” solutions to key open questions in stellar evolution. I will also explore how unexpected connections between precision supernova tomography and future time domain surveys (including LSST) can provide firm observational tests for state-of-the-art simulations attempting to predict and interpret the multi-messenger signals from the next Galactic supernova.

Title: Fast Radio Bursts -- Nature's Latest Cosmic Mystery

Speaker: Duncan Lorimer,  West Virginia University

Host: Deanne Coppejans

Abstract: Fast Radio Bursts are millisecond-duration pulses of unknown origin that were discovered by pulsar astronomers in 2007. A decade on from the discovery, with only 20 further bursts currently known, fast radio bursts remain enigmatic sources which parallel the early days of gamma-ray burst astronomy in the early 1970s. I will tell the story of their discovery, summarize what we know about them so far, describe the science opportunities these bursts present, and make predictions for what we will learn in the next decade.

Title: Proton puzzles at the precision frontier

Speaker: Jan Bernauer
 

Abstract: 

The nucleon and its structure are the focus of intense study on all
energy scales, in both current and upcoming experiments. It is one of
the simplest systems in non-perturbative QCD and the accurate
description of its properties are a touchstone for theoretical
calculations.

However, many properties of the proton, for example mass and spin, are
still puzzling. Recent precision experiments have highlighted two areas
where we do not understand how nature works: the proton radius and the
form factor ratio discrepancy. The former, still unsolved, may have opened
the door to the discovery of physics beyond the Standard Model. While a
solution for the latter seems in reach, the precision results of OLYMPUS
prove theoretical calculations to be incomplete.

In this talk, I will discuss the Mainz high precision form factor
measurement and global form factor analysis, which are corner stones of
the radius puzzle, and the results of the OLYMPUS experiment, set up to
study the form factor ratio discrepancy.

I will close with a short description of ongoing and future precision-frontier
experiments like MUSE and DarkLight.

Title: Biophysics of Spindle Positioning and Elongation

Abstract: The spindle is positioned asymmetrically during the first mitotic division in C. elegans. We are investigating how different forces coordinated to move the spindle, and if these forces are generated from interactions with the cytoplasm, the cortex, or a combination of both. For this purpose, we constructed a laser ablation system capable of cutting complex patterns with high spatial and temporal precision, and we are applying it to quantitatively perturb spindle movements. We are also using fluorescent nanodiamonds to track cytoplasmic fluid flow as the spindle moves. We interpret our data using a combination of theory and simulations (in collaboration with Mike Shelley, NYU/Courant/Flatironan and Ehssan Nazockdast, UNC). Our results argue that pulling forces from the cortex drive key aspects of spindle motions, including the initial centering, subsequent asymmetric positioning, transverse oscillating behaviors, and elongation. We hope to provide a quantitative, integrated understanding of spindle positioning.
