Physics 298
Speaker: Carmen Carmona
LUX (Large Underground Xenon) is a dark matter direct detection experiment deployed at the 4850' level of the Sanford Underground Research Facility (SURF) in Lead, SD, operating a 370 kg dual-phase xenon TPC. We have recently reported the results of the first WIMP search dataset, taken during the... Read More »

Physics 278
Speaker: Erin O'Sullivan (Queen's University)
SNO+ is a scintillator-based neutrino experiment that will be housed at the SNOLAB facility, located two km underground in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada. The SNO+ detector will be capable of exploring many new areas of neutrino physics including neutrinoless double beta decay and low energy solar... Read More »

Raleigh N.C.
Speaker: Evan O'Connor (CITA)
In this talk I will discuss my research on computational simulations of the central engines of core-collapse supernovae, the endgame of massive star evolution. The main message I hope to instill is that not all massive stars are destroyed equally, and that there is, in fact, a great diversity in... Read More »

Raleigh N.C.
Speaker: Erich Poppitz (U. of Toronto)
At NCSU It has recently been realized that some studies of supersymmetric gauge theories, when properly interpreted, lead to insights whose importance transcends supersymmetry. I will illustrate the insightful nature of supersymmetry by two examples having to do with the microscopic description of... Read More »
