Cary Davids - Scientific Staff, Low Energy Group, - Argonne National Laboratory
Sep 29, 2016 - 3:30pm to 5:00pm
Physics - Colloquia - 152 Life Sciences
Davids will briefly summarize what is known about the origin of chemical elements, illustrated along the way by some nuclear physics experiments that he has been involved with. Next, he will discuss how technical advances have made the observation of very exotic nuclei possible. Jumping to the... read more

Neutrinos are among the most abundant particles in the universe and they influence an enormous range of physics. Neutrinos allow us to search for new forces of nature, they measure the composition of the earth’s crust, they tell us how the sun works, and they allow us to peer into the inner... read more

Acoustic levitation can be used as a sample holding device to facilitate containment and a contamination-free environment for X-ray characterization. A stable levitation of liquid droplets can be achieved on the nodes of standing sound wavse via equilibrium of competing forces of gravity, drag,... read more

Rocky Kolb - Arthur Holly Compton Distinguished Service Professor of Astronomy and Astrophysics, University of Chicago
Oct 24, 2016 - 3:30pm to 5:00pm
Physics - Lecture - 111 Life Sciences
The answer to the simple question "what is the universe made of?" is not so simple! Astronomical observations tell us that 95 percent of the universe is missing. Most of the mass of the universe is in a mysterious form known as dark matter, and most of the energy in the universe is in an even more... read more
