Breakthrough Prize for Fundamental Physics for the T2K collaboration and other neutrino experiments

Los experimentos de oscilaciones de neutrinos se llevan el premio Breakthrough Prize for Fundamental Physics .

  • El premio reconoce la importancia del descubrimiento de las oscilaciones de neutrinos como clave para llegar a resolver el enigma de la ausencia de antimateria en el Universo.
  • El premio está valorado en 3 millones de dólares y lo comparten 5 colaboraciones: Daya Bay, KamLAND, SNO, Super-Kamiokande. y T2K junto con K2K.
  • Dos institutos españoles, el IFAE de Barcelona y el IFIC de Valencia, participan en uno de los experimentos premiados, la colaboración T2K y su predecesora K2K.

3 open position at IFAE through the European project P-SPHERE

The European P-SPHERE project, coordinated by the UAB and with participation of UAB-CIE member centres, received funding from the latest COFUND-2014 call.

48 postdoctoral contracts of 3 years' duration are to be awarded and the fellows will conduct their research at UAB-CIE Sphere centers. 3 of these positions are available at IFAE.

Este viernes 9 de octubre, a las cinco de la tarde, tendrá lugar la ceremonia de primera piedra del mayor telescopio Cherenkov del hemisferio norte, el prototipo del LST (Large Size Telescope), de 23 metros de diámetro, en el Observatorio del Roque de los Muchachos (ORM), en isla de La Palma.

SEMINAR: Geometrical destabilization of heavy scalar fields during inflation

October 9 2015, 12:00h - Seminar room

Speaker: Sébastien Renaux-Petel (IAP Paris)

Abstract: We show the existence of a general mechanism by which heavy scalar fields can be destabilized during inflation. It relies on the fact that the effective mass of fluctuations orthogonal to the inflationary direction contains a contribution proportional to the curvature tensor of the field space metric, and that it can render the entropic fluctuations tachyonic.
