Seth Zenz- "Track Jets and their Applications: Soft QCD, Jet Quenching, and Beyond"
Tue, Dec 14, 2010, 2:00 pm3:00 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. Track-based jet…
Alex Himmel-"Muon Neutrino and Antineutrino Oscillations at MINOS"
Tue, Dec 7, 2010, 3:00 pm4:00 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. We present measurements of the atmospheric mass splitting and mixing…
Prof. Daniel M. Kaplan-"New Experiments with Antiprotons"
Tue, Oct 12, 2010, 3:00 pm4:00 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. For example, the annihilation of 8 GeV antiprotons might make the world's most intense source of tagged D^0 mesons, and thus…
