Special Seminar | Searching for Clues to a Matter Dominated Universe with Liquid Argon Time Projection Chambers | Yeon-Jae Jwa | Columbia University

Event Description

We live in a matter-dominated Universe. Sakharov's famous argument listed three necessary conditions for such a manifestation of matter dominance: There needs to be a baryon number violating process; CP symmetry violation; and interactions out of thermal equilibrium. The future Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) plans to investigate two of those conditions, through a search for leptonic CP-violation which could be observable in neutrino oscillation, and through a search for baryon number violating processes such as neutron-antineutron oscillation. I will discuss aspects of both physics searches, and current efforts underway to develop these searches with ongoing experiments.  Furthermore, I will describe efforts to develop machine-learning-based self-triggering in DUNE for the purpose of searches for rare, off-beam physics signals such as supernova bursts, neutron-antineutron oscillation, etc.
