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.

VIRTUAL INPA SEMINAR | Guang Yang (Stony Brook University)

February 12 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Speaker: Guang Yang (Stony Brook University)

Title: Securing An Accurate CP Violation Phase Measurement In DUNE


The requirements for a 5 non-zero delta CP violation phase measurement (if CP violation phase = -pi/2) are a wide-band muon neutrino beam, a 1,300 km baseline, an order of 10s kt fiducial mass detector with high particle identification efficiency and low external background. Additionally, the orders of uncertainty should be 2% for the signal and 5% for the background, which requires an unprecedented level of robustness and redundancy in the measurement. Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) plans to achieve this goal. In this talk, I will focus on some key concepts that were initiated by the Stony Brook Nucleon decay and Neutrino group. One of them is a new detector that is capable to detect the final state neutron kinetic energy named 3DST (3D projection scintillator tracker) and others include an idea to move part of the near detector system off-axis transverse to the beamline and employing a 10kt level water-based liquid scintillator detector as a far detector module.

February 12
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

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.
