20170310 March 10, 2017 The REDTOP Experiment: Rare Eta Decays with a TPC for Optical Photons Corrado Gatto, INFN, Napoli The η meson is almost unique in the particle universe since it is a Goldstone boson and the dynamics of its decay are strongly constrained.  Because the eta has no charge, decays that violate conservation laws can occur without interfering with a corresponding current. The integrated eta meson samples collected in earlier experiments have been less than... More » slides
20170317 March 17, 2017 Using Type Ia Supernovae To Measure The Hubble Constant and Dark Energy Dan Scolnic, University of Chicago Type Ia Supernovae continue to prove to be an incredibly useful tool to measure cosmic distances.  They are a critical pillar in the measurement of the local value of the Hubble constant, which has now been shown to be in over 3-sigma tension with the inferred value of the Hubble constant from measurements of the...
