Speaker: Chao-Chin Yang (UNLV) Title: From Pebbles to Planets: A Tale of Protoplanetary Disks and Planetsimal Formation Abstract: Even though thousands of extrasolar planetary systems have been detected, a comprehensive picture of how planets are formed from their natal protoplanetary disks remains to be drawn. One of the most challenging stages is the formation of kilometer-scale planetesimals from
Speaker: – Emanuele Usai (Brown University) Title: Rare Top Quark Processes at the New Physics Frontier Abstract: The top quark was discovered in 1995 and plays a pivotal role in particle physics at the energy frontier at the LHC era. The simultaneous production of four top quarks is an example of a rare process in
Physics and Astronomy Colloquium: Speaker: Dr. Philip Chang Title: “New Frontiers of Electroweak Physics at the LHC” Abstract: The unification of electroweak interaction took us step closer to Einstein's dream of a unified theory of nature. However, the details of the electroweak unification have remained elusive. Now, with the discovery of the Higgs boson, the
Speaker: Dr. Yuta Takahashi from Zurich Switzerland Title: Finding New Microscopic Interaction that Governs Flavour Structure at the CMS Experiment Abstract: Recent B-physics anomalies are providing tantalizing indications of new physics that could be probed by CMS: new particle(s) with mass O(1–10) TeV with preferred couplings to the 3rd-generation fermions. In this colloquium, I'll review
Speaker: Dr. David Yu (Brown University) Title: Hunting for New Physics with Hadronic Jets at the LHC Abstract: Since the landmark discovery of the Higgs boson ten years ago, the LHC experiments have pursued an extensive program of searches and measurements to go above and beyond the Standard Model. Searches for new particles decaying to
Talk talk by graduate student and observing of moon and nebulae.
Speaker – Dr. Saptaparna Bhattacharya Title: “Looking for New Physics in Rare and Novel Processes at the Large Hadron Collider” Abstract: The collection of a large dataset at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) allows for the exploration of rare processes predicted by the Standard Model of Particle Physics (SM). In this talk I will focus
Speaker – Dr. Christine McLean from SUNY Buffalo Title: “HEP and Future Colliders” Abstract: Since the discovery of the SM Higgs boson in 2012, particle physicists have continued to investigate the source of electroweak symmetry breaking - whether it's caused solely by the Higgs mechanism or if there is new physics involved. This and other
Speaker: Newton M. Barbosa Neto (Institute of Natural Sciences, Federal University of Pará, Brasil) Title: Photoinduced manipulation of conjugated polymers and molecules via sequential two-photon absorption Abstract: Solution processing of conjugated polymers into ordered self-assembled precursors has attracted great interest in the past years owing to the ability to manipulate their structural and physical properties.
