Compton Imaging: From Concept to Application

Wednesday 27 April 2011 , 2:30 pm, at IFAE seminar room

Speaker:  Dr. Laura Harkness (University of Liverpool)

 

Abstract:

Compton imaging can be used to identify and image sources of gamma radiation in a wide variety of applications including medicine, homeland security and nuclear decommissioning.

WISPy signals from the sky

Friday April 15th, 14:30hs -  Seminar room

Speaker: Javier Redondo (MPI, Munich)

Abstract:

Despite their feeble interactions with standard matter, the hypothetical WISPs (weakly interacting sub eV particles) can be significantly produced in stars and in the early universe, having a humongous impact on stellar evolution and cosmology.

Ghost Condensates, Galileons and Supersymmetry

Friday April 1st, 14:30hs - Seminar room

Speaker: Jean-Luc Lehners (Max Planck, Albert Einstein Institute, Golm)

Abstract:

Ghost condensate and galileon theories are of considerable interest since they allow for stable violations of the null energy condition.

Composite Unification

Wednesday March 30th 14:00hs - Coffee room

Speaker : Michele Frigerio

Abstract:

I will entertain the possibility of a TeV scale composite sector, that account at the same time for electroweak symmetry breaking and gauge coupling unification.

First results from the T2K experiment

Monday  March 21st, 12:00hs - Seminar room

Speaker:  Claudio Giganti (IFAE/CPAN)


Abstract:

The 1rst results from the T2K neutrino oscillation experiment based on the  results from the 2010 run are discussed. The neutrino electron appearance and muon neutrino disappearance channels will be presented.

Flavour antisymmetry and new physics in the early LHC era

Friday March 18th 14:30hs - Seminar room

Speaker: Ben Gripaios  (CERN, Geneva)

 

Abstract:

I discuss new physics which may be observable in the current LHC run, but which is safe from the many existing constraints from flavour physics, etc.

Searching for new physics in top-pair and four-top production at the LHC

Friday March 11th, 14:30hs.

Speaker: Geraldine Servant

Abstract:

The top quark is expected to play a special role in electroweak symmetry breaking. It is therefore natural to use top quark observables to test the mechanism responsible for EW breaking and more generally to search for physics beyond the Standard Model.

Low Energy Aspects of Conformal Technicolor with Weak Scale SUSY

Friday Februrary 25th, 14.30hs - Seminar room

Speaker : Jamison Galloway  (U. La Sapienza, Rome & U. of California, Davis)

Abstract:

I will review the motivation for conformal technicolor, and discuss a new approach to this idea based on weak scale SUSY breaking. In the recent work that I'll describe, SUSY breaking is itself responsible for triggering a phase transition in a conformal technicolor sector.

Anomalies: the good, the bad and the ugly

Wednesday, February 23rd,  14:00hs -  Coffee room

Speaker: Francesco Riva


 

 

 

A not so Elementary Higgs

Monday February 21st, 14:30hs - Seminar room

Speaker: Christophe Grojean  (CERN, Geneva & IPhT, Saclay)

Abstract:

Electroweak interactions need three Nambu--Goldstone bosons to provide a mass to the $W^\pm$ and the $Z$ gauge bosons but they also need an ultra-violet (UV) moderator or new physics to unitarize the gauge boson scattering amplitudes.
