Special Physics Colloquium: Evan Grohs (Michigan University)

August 17 | 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Title: Precision neutrino and nuclear physics in the early universe Abstract: The next generation of cosmic observatories will provide 1% precision on parameters and observables. With such levels of precisions, cosmologists will have the best opportunity to verify the standard…

Physics Colloquium: Jim Kneller

August 26 | 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Title: Neutrinos in and from Supernovae Abstract: Ninety-nine percent of the energy released in a core-collapse supernova is emitted in the form of neutrinos. Due to their central role in the supernova paradigm, our understanding of these stellar explosions ultimately…

Physics Colloquium: Chen-Yu Liu (Indiana University)

August 31 | 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Title: Measuring the Neutron Lifetime: Much Ado About Nothing? Abstract: Neutrons are stable inside atomic nuclei. Outside the nucleus, they decay into a proton, electron, and antineutrino, with a lifetime of about 880 s. The rate of decay can be…

Physics Colloquium: Divine P. Kumah

September 9 | 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Title: Emergent Phenomena at Transition Metal Oxide Interfaces Abstract: Transition metal oxides (TMOs) exhibit a wide range of physical properties including high-temperature superconductivity, ferroelectricity, ferromagnetism and metal-insulator transitions. While these physical properties are understood in the bulk forms of these…

Physics Colloquium: Chris Monahan (William & Mary University)

September 21 | 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Title: Searching for new physics with strong QCD Abstract: The Standard Model of Particle Physics, the mathematical framework that describes the basic building blocks of the visible Universe, has been enormously successful. But we know that it is incomplete: it…

Physics Colloquium: James Freericks (Georgetown University)

September 28 | 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Title: Operator Mechanics: A new form of quantum mechanics without waves or matrices Abstract: Quantum mechanics was created with the matrix mechanics of Heisenberg, Born, and Jordan. Schroedinger's wave mechanics shortly followed and allowed for simpler and more powerful calculations.…
