La red de telescopios Cherenkov CTA inicia negociaciones con España para la posible ubicación de su sede del hemisferio Norte en la isla de La Palma

Un prototipo del gran telescopio LST de esta red se instalará en el Observatorio del Roque de los Muchachos mediante un acuerdo entre el IAC y la Universidad de Tokio

L'experiment T2K mesura per primera vegada la desaparició d'anti-neutrins de tipus muó

• Aquesta nova mesura s'afegeix al descobriment fet en 2013 d'un nou tipus de transformació del neutrí en la recerca per resoldre l'enigma de l'absència d'antimatèria a l'univers.

• Dos instituts espanyols, l'IFAE de Barcelona i l'IFIC de València, participen del descobriment.

La UE impulsa l'astronomia europea amb 15 milions d'euros

S'inicia el projecte ASTERICS, finançat amb 15 milions d'euros per la Unió Europea, per coordinar recursos i distribuir les dades massives que generarà l'astronomia europea. El projecte també farà possible l'accés obert a les dades astronòmiques europees i aproparà al gran públic algunes de les millors imatges de l'Univers.

SEMINAR: Solar constraints for particle physics

May 22 2015, 12:00pm - Seminar room

Speaker: Aldo Serenelli (IEEC UAB)

Abstract : Standard solar models (SSMs) have been used for more than 30 years for to set limits on properties of non-standard particles. Their constraining power, however, depends on how accurately they represent the Sun and this has been challenged over the last decade by spectroscopic measurements of the solar surface composition: the solar abundance problem.

SEMINAR: Mining the Golden Channel: Searching for New Physics in Higgs decays to four leptons

May 15 2015, 12:00pm - Seminar room

Speaker: Roberto Vega-Morales (LPT-Orsay, Paris)

Abstract : An overview of various physics possibilities in the Higgs to four leptons 'golden channel' decay will be presented and discussed. First we analyze effective Higgs couplings to neutral electroweak gauge bosons​.


SEMINAR: Accidental matter at the LHC


April 28 2015, 12:00pm - Seminar room

Speaker: Luca Di Luzio (U Genova)

Abstract : In this talk I will discuss a class of weak-scale extensions of the Standard Model which automatically preserve its accidental and approximate symmetry structure at the renormalizable level and which are hence invisible to low-energy indirect probes.

THESIS DEFENSE: Characterization of a CdTe Detector Module for Nuclear Medicine Application

April 27 2015, 12:00 - Seminar room

Thesis Defender: Gerard Arino



SEMINAR: Study of the Higgs properties at a muon collider

May 8 2015, 12:00pm -  Seminar room

Speaker: Mario Greco (INFN and Univ. Roma 3)

Abstract : The discovery of the Higgs particle at 125 GeV is demanding a detailed knowledge of the properties of this fundamental component of the Standard Model.

THESIS DEFENCE: Measurement of the gamma-ray opacity of the Universe with the MAGIC telescopes

April 24 2015, 11:30am - Seminar room

Thesis Defender: Adiv González Muñoz
