"An Electron Neutrino Appearance Search at MicroBooNE to Resolve the MiniBooNE Anomaly"


Astrophysics Seminar: Marco Vignati; Roma La Sapienza; "Superconducting Detectors for Neutrino and Dark Matter Searches"; Jadwin 303

Mon, Nov 12, 2018, 2:00 pm

Rare event searches in particle physics, such as Majorana neutrinos and Dark Matter interactions, require detectors with low energy threshold, excellent energy resolution and large sensing volumes. We are developing new sensors based on Kinetic Inductance Detectors, consisting in superconducting resonant circuits cooled below the critical...


Astroparticle Seminar: A.Chavarria-UChicago “A high-resolution CMOS imaging detector for the search of neutrinoless double beta decay in Se-82"

Wed, Nov 16, 2016, 2:00 pm to Wed, Nov 9, 2016, 3:00 pm
Abstract: The detection of neutrinoless double beta decay is the only known avenue to establish that neutrinos are Majorana fermions, as opposed to Dirac fermions.

Astroparticle Seminar: A.Chavarria-UChicago “A high-resolution CMOS imaging detector for the search of neutrinoless double beta decay in Se-82”

Astroparticle Physics Seminar: Phillip Urquijo, Univ. of Melbourne

Fri, May 27, 2016, 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm
“Searching for New Phenomena at the Intensity Frontier” Abstract In February of this year the intensity frontier SuperKEKB e+e- collider, located at the KEK laboratory in Tsukuba, came online with its “first turns”, a major milestone in preparing for collisions in 2017. The Belle II detector, located at the SuperKEKB interaction point, will be...

Astroparticle Seminar: "Neutrino Physics faces Cosmology"- Carlos Peña Garay

Fri, Jan 29, 2016, 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Neutrinos are among the fundamental particles which can be measured in the lab and have an impact on cosmological observables. CMB data verified there were three neutrinos produced in the early universe and large scale structure data can probe neutrino masses, also partially known by neutrino oscillation experiments.

Astroparticle Seminar:Canfranc Laboratory-speaker Aldo Ianni

Thu, Jan 28, 2016, 4:00 pm to Wed, Jan 27, 2016, 5:00 pm
The Canfranc Laboratory is the second largest Deep Underground Infrastructure for Astroparticle Physics in Europe. It is located in the Spanish Pyrenees at 1100 meters above sea level at the border between Spain and France. About 1600 square meters are available underground for experimental activities.

Special Particle Astrophysics Seminar:"Recent dark matter search results from DarkSide-50 using underground argon" Alden Fan-UCLA

"Testing gravity with cold atom interferometry" Speaker Guglielmo M. Tino, host C. Galbiati

Wed, Oct 21, 2015, 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm
The ability to control the quantum degrees of freedom of atoms using laser light opened the way to precision measurements of fundamental physical quantities.

Tue, Apr 7, 2015, 1:00 pm to Fri, Mar 27, 2015, 2:00 pm

High Energy Physics Experimental Seminar-Chris Palmer CERN-

Wed, Jul 30, 2014, 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm
"The Discovery of the Higgs Boson and the Final Run 1 Measurements"

Particle Astrophysics Seminar: Maria Elena Monzani:SLAC "Dark Matter Searches in the Sky and Underground"

Fri, Feb 7, 2014, 2:30 pm to 3:00 pm
The existence of a source of gravitational effects beyond regular matter is well established, but its nature remains a deep mystery. In principle, Dark Matter particles could be detected either directly, via their interaction on target nuclei, or indirectly, by observing their annihilation in galaxy halos.

Particle Astrophysics Seminar: Barbara Caccianiga (Milano) & Marco Pallavicini (Genova) - "SOX - Short Baseline Oscillations with Borexino"

Wed, Jan 29, 2014, 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Reactor neutrino experiments and short baseline experiments at LANL and FNAL left the door open for the possibility of ~1 eV mass sterile neutrinos, mixing with the standard neutrino sector.

Particle Astrophysics Seminar: Laura Cardani; Sapienza, University of Rome and INFN-Roma, Italy

Wed, Dec 4, 2013, 2:30 pm to 3:30 pm
"NEUTRINOLESS DOUBLE BETA DECAY SEARCHES WITH BACKGROUND-FREE DETECTORS" Neutrinoless double beta decay is a hypothesized nuclear transition whose observation would help resolve the puzzle of the nature of the neutrino (Dirac or Majorana fermion). In addition, it would provide a measurement of the neutrino mass.

Particle AstrophysicsSeminar: Flavio Gatti, University of Genova, "New Developments on Direct Neutrino Mass Searches"

Thu, Nov 21, 2013, 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Although the neutrino mass-flavor PMNS mixing matrix and the splittings among masses have been adequately assessed, the absolute mass scale is yet unknown. Further, the discovery of Higgs boson opens new pathways for theoretical investigations on the origin of the neutrino masses.
