Fall 2023 EHS Orientation for Wright Lab Research Shop Users

Wright Lab will host two, identical 1-hour Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) Shop Orientations on Thursday, September 7 at 1 p.m. and Tuesday, September 12 at 2:30 p.m. The EHS shop orientation is offered each semester and is required to be taken once by anyone who would like to gain access and make use of the research and teaching shops at Wright Lab.

Wright Lab Resources Presentation

We invite members of our community, in particular new members, to an overview presentation about Wright Lab resources. The program includes introductions of Wright Lab technical and administrative staff, an overview of program activities for the Fall, a safety briefing for the community, and brief presentations about the facility’s resources.

HPC Workshop: Shared Memory Programming Using OpenMP

This workshop is intended to give C and Fortran programmers a hands-on introduction to OpenMP programming. Attendees will leave with a working knowledge of how to write scalable codes using OpenMP. This event will be presented using the Wide Area Classroom(WAC) training platform. This will be an IN PERSON event hosted by various satellite sites, there WILL NOT be a direct to desktop option for this event.

NPA Seminar: Jonghee Yoo, Seoul National University, "Searching for invisible axion dark matter with an 18T magnet haloscope"

Astrophysical observation indicates that 68% of the Universe is made up of dark energy, 27% is dark matter, and the rest 5% is ordinary matter. Therefore, probing the dark components of the Universe is the most prominent subject in modern particle physics. One of the strong candidates of dark matter is the hypothetical particle called axions. The axion has been postulated to solve the strong-CP problem in quantum chromodynamics. The axion is also an ideal dark matter candidate who would have been produced during the Big Bang.

NPA Seminar: Karl van Bibber, UC Berkeley, "ALPHA – A Search for the Post-Inflation Axion"

The axion represents both the most natural solution to the Strong-CP problem and a compelling candidate to constitute the dark matter of the Universe. The most sensitive experiments searching for axion dark matter are based on the resonant conversion of axions to photons within a microwave cavity permeated by a magnetic field.

Dissertation Defense: Sumita Ghosh, Yale University, "Harnessing HAYSTAC for Hidden Photons and Advancing Rydberg Atom-based Axion Detection"

Dark matter is the name that we give to the 85% of matter in the universe that interacts via gravity but negligibly with any of the other known forces. One compelling model for dark matter is the axion, as it simultaneously solves the existence of dark matter and the strong CP problem in QCD. Axions can interact with a strong magnetic field through the Primakoff effect, wherein the axion can spontaneously convert into a photon in the presence of a strong magnetic field.

WL Summer Program: Kayleigh Bohemier, Yale, “Résumés, CVs, and Your Online Presence, From Academia to the Cubicle: A Pizza Lunch Workshop”

Learn how to recognize what makes a good résumé or CV, how to manage your online professional presence, and what tools you can use to help you make decisions about your grad school search. We’ll look at several faculty CVs, commonly-used professional profile websites, and library databases that can help you find information on departments, industries, companies, and more — whether you plan to go into academia, corporate, or nonprofit work.
