High Energy Experiment Seminar

Higgs Snowmass Workshop

Tue, Jan 15, 2013, 9:00 am
The possibilities for future directions of precision Higgs physics from the current results and extrapolations at the LHC to a wide range of potential upgrades and new collider facilities are presented and compared. The strategies for producing simulation results and the benchmarks for physics and detector performances are discussed.

The strategies for producing simulation results and the benchmarks for physics and detector performances are discussed.

High Energy Physcis Seminar-Kanishk Rao-Top-quarks, Dark Matter, and BSM Higgs at CDF and ATLAS

Mon, Jan 7, 2013, 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm
We present searches in the top-quark, dark matter and BSM Higgs sectors at the CDF and ATLAS experiments. We present a search for fourth generation quarks at the ATLAS detector using a novel W identification method. We search for a new particle resonance that might explain the CDF observed top-quark asymmetry at CDF and ATLAS.

High Energy Theory Informal Seminar - David Marsh, Cornell University - Wasteland of Random Supergravities

Tue, Feb 28, 2012, 12:30 pm to 2:00 pm
Abstract: I will discuss how in a general N = 1 supergravity with N ≫ 1 scalar fields, an exponentially small fraction of the de Sitter critical points are metastable vacua.

High Energy Physcis Seminar- Sue Ann Koay-"Excavating for SUSY: A dark matter search at the Large Hadron Collider experiment"

Mon, Dec 19, 2011, 2:45 pm to 4:15 pm
One of the challenges of 21st century particle physics is a deficit of observations to constrain/shape hypotheses for what may be "the"Theory Of Everything, or at least a next stage in our development of such.

High Energy Physcis Seminar- Dmytro Kovalskyi-SLAC-"Search for the Higgs Boson with CMS Detector"

Tue, Oct 18, 2011, 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm
2011 has been the year when the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) became the world's leading experimental facility in the area of the fundamental particle interactions. The amount of data available for analysis is increasing exponentially. The search for the Higgs boson is entering its final phase and it is very likely that we will know for sure if it...

High Energy Physics Seminar- Hiro Tanaka-"Recent results from the Tokai-to-Kamioka (T2K) Experiment"

Mon, Oct 10, 2011, 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm
I will report on recent results from the Tokai-to-Kamioka (T2K) experiment, which aims to make high sensitivity and precise studies of neutrino oscillation using an intense off-axis muon neutrino beam produced by the Japan Proton Accelerator Complex (J-PARC) and directed towards the Super Kamiokande (SK) detector 295 km away.

High Energy Physcis Seminar- Sanjay Padhi, CERN -"Is SUSY still alive? A CMS perspective"

Tue, Sep 27, 2011, 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm
After decades of preparation, the experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) are taking the first steps toward resolving many long-standing puzzles about fundamental physics at the weak scale. There were high expectations for early discovery of Supersymmetry (SUSY) at

High Energy Physcis Seminar- Jocelyn Monroe-MIT

Tue, Feb 8, 2011, 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm
"Directional Detection for Dark Matter and Neutrino Physics"

Seth Zenz- "Track Jets and their Applications: Soft QCD, Jet Quenching, and Beyond"

Tue, Dec 14, 2010, 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Jets produced in collisions at the CERN LHC can be reconstructed using the charged-particle tracks measured in the ATLAS Inner Detector. Jets are produced copiously at the LHC, and can be used to study the details of the strong interaction, the hot dense medium produced in heavy ion collisions, and new fundamental particles.

Alex Himmel-"Muon Neutrino and Antineutrino Oscillations at MINOS"

Tue, Dec 7, 2010, 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm
MINOS is a long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment with two detectors 734 km apart exposed to the Fermilab NuMI neutrino beam. By comparing the energy spectrum and beam composition at the two sites neutrino oscillations at L/E~500 km/GeV can be measured with precision.

Prof. Daniel M. Kaplan-"New Experiments with Antiprotons"

Tue, Oct 12, 2010, 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Fermilab operates the world's most intense antiproton source. Newly proposed experiments can use those antiprotons either parasitically during Tevatron Collider running or after the Tevatron Collider finishes in about 2011.
