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 | Zepeng Li (Yale University)

February 19 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Speaker: Zepeng Li (Yale University)

Title: Search For Neutrinoless Double Beta Decay In Liquid Xenon TPC


Search for neutrinoless double beta decay is a direct tool to investigate the Majorana nature of the neutrinos and mechanism of neutrino mass generation. Discovery of neutrinoless double beta decay would be a direct indication of lepton number violation, and provide a portal to probe physics beyond the Standard Model. The nEXO experiment, built on the success of EXO-200 experiment, will search for neutrinoless double beta decay of 136Xe using a large ultra-low background liquid xenon time projection chamber, nEXO has distinct advantages of good energy resolution, full 3-D reconstruction of energy depositions in the detector, and excellent self-shielding against external backgrounds, that will provide world-leading sensitivity to neutrinoless double beta decay. I will talk about the development of new experimental techniques for the nEXO experiment from both software and hardware perspectives.

February 19
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.

INPA Common Room (50-5026)
3:30 pm

Access to the Lab

For a shuttle pass please email Paris Gordon. Please note: the pass is only valid for the day of the seminar.

If you have questions, comments, or suggestions please contact, preferably via email, Paris Gordon.
