Impressions from the Spring Meeting of the German Physics Society 2017 #DPGDD17

Last week from March 19th to 24th I attended the annual Spring Meeting of the Condensed Matter Section of the German Physics Society 2017 in Dresden. The new hot topics in this field currently are perovskite materials for solar cells, micro-swimmers, medical and biological applications of hydrogels and bio imaging. I was particularly interested to ...

Fundamental Symmetries of the Early Universe and the Origin of Matter

This week I hosted Prof. Michael Ramsey-Musolf, Director of the Amherst Center for Fundamental Interactions,  who was visiting from UMass.-Amherst to give the MSU P&A Colloquium on “Fundamental Symmetries of the Early Universe and the Origin of Matter.” Abstract: Explaining why the universe contains more matter than antimatter remains an open problem at the interface of particle ...

2017 University Undergraduate Research and Arts Forum

Six Spinlab undergraduate researchers will be presenting  on our research on April 7 as a part of MSU’s 2017 University Undergraduate Research and Arts Forum. Abstracts (links), titles, and locations for the posters (2) and talks (5) are below. Name: Kate Nezich Title: How to Make Atoms Glow: Characterization of Different LED’S for the Detection of Rare Nuclear Reaction Products ...

Seminar @ Bucknell

Testing Time-Reversal Symmetry Using Lasers, a Magic Room, and Pear-Shaped Nuclei Experimental tests of fundamental symmetries using nuclei and other particles subject to the strong nuclear force have led to the discovery of parity (P) violation and the discovery of charge-parity (CP) violation. It is believed that additional sources of CP-violation may be needed to ...

CUSTIPEN-IMP-PKU Workshop on Physics of Exotic Nuclei

I was asked to give a talk on “The Search for Electric Dipole Moments Using Octupole-Deformed Nuclei” @ the Workshop on Physics of Exotic Nuclei in Huizhou, Guandong, China. This is the first public talk I’ve given on our concept for a Protactinium-229 EDM search in the FRIB era. While in China, I also had a chance ...

APS DNP Vancouver 2016

Four members of the Spinlab team made the trip to Vancouver for the annual fall meeting of the Division of Nuclear Physics of the American Physical Association held Oct. 13-16th. The team contributed talks and posters regarding their work at the MSU Spinlab and was composed of Jaideep Singh, Roy Ready, Jake Huneau, and Kristen ...

Colloquium @ Central Michigan University

Testing Time-Reversal Symmetry Using Lasers, a Magic Room, and Pear-Shaped Nuclei Experimental tests of fundamental symmetries using nuclei and other particles subject to the strong nuclear force have led to the discovery of parity (P) violation and the discovery of charge-parity (CP) violation. It is believed that additional sources of CP-violation may be needed to ...

Colloquium @ University of Nevada-Reno

Testing Time-Reversal Symmetry Using Lasers, a Magic Room, and Pear-Shaped Nuclei Experimental tests of fundamental symmetries using nuclei and other particles subject to the strong nuclear force have led to the discovery of parity (P) violation and the discovery of charge-parity (CP) violation. It is believed that additional sources of CP-violation may be needed to ...

Colloquium @ Texas Tech University

Testing Time-Reversal Symmetry Using Lasers, a Magic Room, and Pear-Shaped Nuclei Experimental tests of fundamental symmetries using nuclei and other particles subject to the strong nuclear force have led to the discovery of parity (P) violation, the discovery of charge-parity (CP) violation, and the prediction of a hypothetical particle called the axion, which is currently ...

Colloquium @ University of Toronto

Testing Time-Reversal Symmetry Using Lasers, a Magic Room, and Pear-Shaped Nuclei Experimental tests of fundamental symmetries using nuclei and other particles subject to the strong nuclear force have led to the discovery of parity (P) violation, the discovery of charge-parity (CP) violation, and the prediction of a hypothetical particle called the axion, which is currently ...
