About the INPA Seminars

All seminars are on Fridays (unless otherwise noted) and start at 12:00 (noon) with a brief presentation of the weekly scientific news. Typically the talks end by 13:00. The seminars take place in Bldg. 50A, room 5132.

The committee members are:

The following Seminar schedule for the Institute for Nuclear and Particle Astrophysics is tentative. The seminar becomes final usually a few days before the Friday of the talk.

SPEAKER: Agnes Ferte (KIPAC, SLAC)-TITLE: Preparing for discovery of new physics with the Rubin Observatory

March 31 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

This is an In-Person [HYBRID] Event

LOCATION: Sessler Conference Room – 50A – 5132

DATE: March 31, 2023

TIME: 12:00 PM

TITLE: Preparing for discovery of new physics with the Rubin Observatory 

ABSTRACT: The coming decade will offer a unique opportunity to tests physics using cosmological probes, thanks to the new generation of galaxy surveys such as LSST by the Vera C. Rubin Observatory and CMB experiments. We will be able to test dark energy and the laws of gravity on cosmic scales with unprecedented precision, both through the evolution of the background and growth of structures in the Universe. I will explain the multiprobe analysis we performed, especially focusing on weak gravitational lensing, and results we obtained using Dark Energy Survey data (arxiv:2207.05766), precursor of LSST. I will then describe how such analyses with future data are shaping and the gaps left to fill. I will end by describing the status of the Vera C. Rubin Observatory, under construction in Chile and its future.

INPA guests from campus can now come up to the lab early on Fridays. The INPA Common Room (50-5026) is reserved for our guests from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon, and from 1 pm to 5 pm. Note that the seminars are now held in 50A-5132 to accommodate a larger number of attendees.

Also, on Fridays from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm you are welcome to join the INPA Speaker for a brown-bag lunch in the small Pers Hall conference room, 54-130B.

INPA Tea Series

The Physics and Nuclear Science Divisions have together been leaders in revolutionary changes in our understanding of neutrinos and cosmology. Everyone is welcome to attend the open forum. Tea and light refreshments will be served.
