NPA Seminar, Steven Prohira, Ohio State University, "Toward Detection of UHE Neutrinos with the Radar Echo Telescope"

Detection of ultra-high-energy (UHE) neutrinos is the key to understanding the most energetic processes in the universe, namely, the sources of UHE cosmic rays which have been detected at earth with energies exceeding 1 Joule per nucleon. As UHE cosmic messengers, neutrinos are unparalleled for their ability to travel from source to Earth. Unfortunately, however, they are very difficult to detect, owing to their low flux and small interaction cross section.

NPA Seminar, Jaki Noronha-Hostler, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign , "RHIC BES and Neutron Stars"

In-person attendance will be capped at 20 people on a first-come, first-served basis, according to the current Yale policies.

NPA Seminar, Christian Wittweg, University of Zurich, "Recent Results and Status of the XENON Dark Matter Project"

The XENON Dark Matter Project uses xenon dual-phase time projection chambers for direct Dark Matter detection. With steadily growing target masses the XENON detectors set world-leading limits on WIMP-nucleon interactions over a broad mass range – most recently with XENON1T. Its unprecedentedly low backgrounds coupled with the tonne-year exposure also enabled searches for rare nuclear processes, the coherent elastic scattering of solar neutrinos and alternative Dark Matter candidates.
