The integrated eta meson samples collected in earlier experiments have been less than... More » slides

20210430 April 30, 2021 The Run 1 anomalous muon precession frequency analysis Lawrence Gibbons, Cornell The Muon g-2 collaboration at Fermilab has recently announced its first results for measurement of the muon magnetic anomaly aμ based on its 2018 Run-1 dataset. The measurement requires measurement of two frequencies, whose ratio forms the key input to the anomaly determination. The magnetic field strength measured in terms of the precession frequency of...

20210521 May 21, 2021 Electron-Ion Collider - a Giant CT Scan for Nuclear Femtography Jianwei Qiu, Jefferson Lab The proton and neutron, known as nucleons, are the fundamental building blocks of all atomic nuclei that make up essentially all the visible matter in the universe, including the stars, the planets, and us. Nucleons have a complex internal structure. Within Quantum Chromodynamics, nucleons emerge as strongly interacting and relativistic bound states of quarks and... More »

20210625 June 25, 2021 Measuring the fine-structure constant to refine Standard Model predictions Saïda Guellati-Khélifa, Sorbonne University The fine structure constant is this “magic ” number close to 1/137 that appears in several areas of physics. This dimensionless constant characterizes the strength of the electromagnetic interaction between light and charged elementary particles, such as electron or muon. A precise knowledge of its numerical value is crucial to test, even with low-energy experiments,... More »
20210709 July 9, 2021 The age of flavour (Please note special time: 1pm) Guy Wilkinson, Oxford University I argue that in the 21st century no other area of particle physics has seen such a wealth of stimulating results as has the study of quark transitions. I assess the reasons for this progress, before surveying a selection of the most interesting recent results in the field. I conclude by looking forward to the... More »

20210806 Aug. 6, 2021 A measurement of the W boson mass at LHCb Stephen Farry, University of Liverpool The LHCb detector is a dedicated flavour physics detector at the LHC, instrumented in the forward region and optimised for the study of B and D hadron decays. However, due to its unique coverage, it has also made important measurements in a number of other sectors including electroweak and top quark physics. It was also... More »
20210813 Aug. 13, 2021 Testing Dark Energy with Galaxy Clustering and Lensing in the Dark Energy Survey Jack-Elvin Poole, Ohio State University Galaxy surveys are fundamental tools of cosmology allowing us to measure the geometry and growth of structure in the universe. Using weak gravitational lensing and galaxy clustering from these surveys, we can directly trace the dark matter distribution and infer from this the properties of Dark Energy and Dark Matter. Recent measurements of this kind... More »
20211001 Oct. 1, 2021 Search for anomalous single-photon production in MicroBooNE as a first test of the MiniBooNE low-energy excess Mark Ross-Lonergan, Columbia University We report first results from a search for neutrino-induced neutral current (NC) resonant ∆(1232) baryon production followed by ∆ radiative decay. Data corresponding to MicroBooNE’s first three years of operations (6.80×1020 protons on target) are used to select single-photon events with one or zero protons and without charged leptons in the final state. The background... More »
