Past HET and HEE Seminars



Experimental Particle Physics Seminar: Exotic Higgs decays & AI triggers at the LHC

Tae Min Hong (CERN)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, 3W2

Data at the LHC allows us to probe whether the Higgs boson communicates with unknown and/or undiscovered sectors beyond the Standard Model. I will discuss ATLAS results on the searches for Higgs decays to dark matter…



High Energy Theory Seminar: Making massive spin-2 particles from gravity during and after inflation

Andrew Long (Rice University)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, 3W2

The phenomenon of cosmological gravitational particle production (CGPP) occurs during and after inflation as quantum fields “feel” the cosmological expansion are excited out of their ground state.  CGPP is a…



High Energy Theory Seminar: Black Holes as the 21st century laboratory: New Tools and Prospects

Alfredo Guevara González (Harvard)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, 4N12

Recent breakthrough observations of black holes call for a new conceptual framework that unifies their analysis, from gravitational wave production to VLBI imaging of the photon ring. I will show how this is achieved…



High Energy Theory Seminar: Cornering axion(s) with direct detection and stellar probes

Edoardo Vitagliano (Hebrew U.)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, 3W2

Feebly interacting particles (FIPs), such as axions, scalars, dark photons, and majorons, are often theoretically well motivated, and a dark sector including one or more of them can both have the…



High Energy Theory Seminar: Coherence in the sky: from precision astrometry to black holes and hidden particles

Masha Baryakhtar (U. Wash)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, 4N12

In the era of a wealth of data from the sky, new perspectives can lead to parametric improvements in discovery reach.  I will discuss two ideas that make use of surprising properties of coherent radiation to open new…
