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 | Jay Hun Jo (Yale University)

February 26 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Speaker: Jay Hun Jo (Yale University)

Title: Searching For Long Standing Anomalies In Particle Physics With COSINE-100 and MicroBooNE


Two of the most pressing questions in particle physics are the nature of the dark matter in the universe and understanding neutrinos – overall and as an explanation for our matter dominated universe. In each case, there are long standing anomalies which must be addressed for the fields to progress to new discoveries. DAMA’s claim of a dark matter-induced annual modulation signal is being addressed by the COSINE-100 experiment, a direct detection dark matter detector with the same sodium iodide detectors as DAMA. The short baseline anomaly which includes MiniBooNE’s LEE result, is being addressed by the MicroBooNE single-phase liquid argon time projection chamber. I will discuss recent results from COSINE-100 and the MicroBooNE experiment in these efforts.

February 26
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.
