    “Strange Metals and Black Holes”

    Location: Serin Physics Laboratory, Physics Lecture Hall
    Time: 4:45 PM
    Speaker(s): Subir Sachdev, Harvard University
    Note: Tea served at 4:30 pm. All welcome.

    Description: Strange metals are conducting states of quantum matter without any quasiparticle excitations. The copper-based high temperature superconductors display a strange metal at temperatures above the critical temperature, T_c, for superconductivity, and at electron densities where T_c is maximal. I will (i) describe a solvable model of a strange metal whose properties match quantitatively with those of charged black holes; (ii) outline a general framework for computing observable properties of strange metals, drawing upon numerous theoretical methods, including the black hole mapping; (iii) describe a recent experiment in graphene, in which theory is compared with a (slightly less) strange metal.

    Princeton University Thunch Talk
    “What Lies Beneath: Dust Obscured Star Formation and Black Hole Growth”

    Location: Peyton Hall, Room 33 (basement)
    Time: 12:30 PM
    Speaker(s): Allison Kirkpatrick, University of Massachusetts Amherst
    Note: See the website for information on placing a food order by 10:30 am Thursday.

    Description: The evolution of massive dusty galaxies is driven by AGN growth and star formation, but due to the copious amounts of dust, it is often impossible to observe these processes directly. Instead, we must disentangle information about the inner workings of galaxies from the observed dust emission. Using a large sample of z=0.5-2 Ultra Luminous Infrared Galaxies, I quantify the contributions to the dust heating from AGN activity and star formation using deep Spitzer mid-IR spectroscopy. I combine the mid-IR spectroscopy with Herschel imaging to probe the temperatures of the bulk of the dust mass. I find that purely star forming galaxies show no evolution in dust temperature or strength of the emission features from z=0.5-2. For those galaxies hosting an AGN, the peak of the far-IR dust emission is unrelated to the AGN luminosity. I also explore composite galaxies--those galaxies which show both strong mid-IR star formation and AGN signatures. These galaxies are more likely to be mergers and do show an clear increase in dust temperature with increasing redshift and LIR. Based on the morphologies and dust emission signatures, composites are a possible evolutionary link between purely star forming galaxies and galaxies hosting an IR luminous AGN.

    Rutgers University Astrophysics Seminar
    “Understanding the Physics of Galaxy Clusters”

    Location: Serin Hall, Room 401
    Time: 1:30 PM
    Speaker(s): Andrea Morandi, University of Alabama in Huntsville
    Note: Refreshments to follow in room 332W.

    Description: Recent years have witnessed the emergence of galaxy clusters as fundamental cosmological and astrophysical tool.  In this talk I will review recent advances in the physics of clusters. I will focus on what can be learned  from X-ray, Sunyaev Zel'dovich and lensing observations, and hydrodynamical numerical simulations. I will discuss some recent developments on the modeling of both dark matter and the intracluster medium, in particular with respect to the first determination of the intrinsic shape and physical parameters of both dark matter and the intracluster medium in triaxial galaxy clusters via a multiwavelength analysis. Next, I will discuss a method to determine of physical parameters in clusters, including gas temperature and peculiar velocities, via multi-frequency Sunyaev Zel'dovich observations and independent of X-ray observations. Finally, I will overview recent developments in the virialization region of clusters, which has recently raised a lot of attention because it offers a direct view of structure formation. In particular, I will present novel results on the physical properties of the intracluster medium at the cluster outskirts, including average emission measure, gas density and gas fraction, temperature, entropy and gas inhomogeneities.

    Princeton University Astroplasmas Seminar - ADDED
    “Fast and Slow Propagation of Thermonuclear Flames During Type I Bursts”

    Location: Peyton Hall, Dome Room, Room 201
    Time: 12:30 PM
    Speaker(s): Yuri Cavecchi, University of Amsterdam

    Description: he Type I Bursts, thermonuclear explosions on the surface layers of accreting neutron stars, produce extremely bright X-ray flashes that outshine all the other emission for tens of seconds. Their lightcurves encode information about star parameters such as spin, mass and radius that are key to constraining the long sought for equation of state of the matter in the interior of the neutron stars. However, to be able to fully disentangle that information from the observations, we need a solid understanding of how the burning flame propagates across the surface. The mathematical complexity of the problem makes non-approximate analytical solutions impossible and we have to rely on numerical simulations. I will present the results of ab initio calculations of the flame spreading, describing the physical mechanisms behind the propagation and their dependence on the star parameters.

    “New Insights on the Origin of Cosmic Rays”

    Location: Bloomberg Hall, Astrophysics Library
    Time: 11:00 AM
    Speaker(s): Damiano Caprioli, Princeton University

    Description: The origin of cosmic rays (CRs) has puzzled scientists since the pioneering discovery by Victor Hess in 1912. In the last decade, however, modern supercomputers have opened a new window on the processes regulating astrophysical collisionlessplasmas, allowing the study of CR acceleration via first-principles kinetic simulations; at the same time, new generations of X-ray and gamma-ray telescopes have been collecting evidence that Galactic CRs are accelerated in the blast waves of supernova remnants (SNRs). I present state-of-the-art particle-in-cells simulations of non-relativistic shocks, in which ion and electron acceleration efficiency, and magnetic field amplification, are studied in detail as a function of the shock parameters. I then discuss the theoretical and observational counterparts of these findings, comparing them with predictions of diffusive shock acceleration theory, and with multi-wavelength observations of young SNRs.

    Institute for Advanced Study/Princeton University Joint Astrophysics Colloquium
    “Order Out of Chaos: Formation of galaxies in hierarchical universe”

    Location: Bloomberg Hall Lecture Hall
    Time: 10:45 AM
    Speaker(s): Andrey Kravtsov, University of Chicago
    Note: Coffee and refreshments are available from 10:15 am in the Bloomberg Hall Commons Room.

    Description: Galaxy formation is a complex, hierarchical, highly non-linear process, which involves gravitational collapse of dark matter and baryons, supersonic, highly compressible and turbulent flows of gas, star formation, stellar feedback, as well as heating, cooling, and chemical processes. All of these processes appear to be critically important in shaping properties of galaxies. At the same time, despite the apparent complexity of these processes and the ways they interact, observed properties of galaxies exhibit a number of striking regularities, such as tight  correlations between galaxy sizes, masses, luminosities, and internal velocities and surprisingly tight correlations between properties of stars and gas in galaxies and the mass and extent of their parent halos dominated by dark matter.  Existence of such correlations indicates that powerful processes operate to bring order out of chaos. In this talk I will discuss some insights based on the recent work aimed to understand this aspect of galaxy formation, focusing on some specific issues in how mass of galaxies and their host dark matter halos is assembled and in how thermodynamics processes of diffuse gas, star formation, and stellar feedback conspire to produce galaxies quite close to observed systems.

    “Probing the History and Dynamics of the Universe with Polarized Signatures in the Cosmic Microwave Background”

    Location: Melvin B. Gottlieb Auditorium
    Time: 4:00 PM
    Speaker(s): Suzane Staggs, Princeton University

    Description: The cosmic microwave background (CMB) radiation reports the initial conditions in the universe for the formation of large scale structures (galaxies and their dark matter halos, clusters of galaxies). The CMB is slightly polarized by Thomson scattering whenever there is any local quadrupolar anisotropy in the distribution of the scattering electron population. A tantalizing fact is that the gravitational wave background left after a proposed early epoch of exponential expansion of the universe, aka inflation, could produce a unique signature in the polarization, called B-modes. I will elaborate on the present state of CMB polarization measurements at both large and small angles, with a focus on data from two instruments in the Atacama Desert: the Atacama Cosmology Telescope (ACT) and the Atacama B-mode Search (ABS).

    Rutgers University Astrophysics Seminar
    “The Ups and Downs of Galaxies”

    Location: Serin Hall, Room 401
    Time: 1:30 PM
    Speaker(s): Camilla Pacifici, Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI)
    Note: Refreshments to follow in room 332W.

    Description: In the past years, ground-based and space telescopes have given us inestimable information about the Universe we leave in. We can now study the physical properties of galaxies from the present day, up to 13 billion years ago. Such quantity and quality of data require more and more advanced tools to best exploit the observations. To do this, we have developed a sophisticated approach to extract meaningful informations from any type of galaxy observation, from rest-frame ultraviolet to near-infrared wavelengths. We have built a physically motivated library of galaxy spectral energy distributions by combining the semi-analytic post-treatment of a large cosmological simulation with state-of-the-art models of the stellar and nebular emission and the effect of dust. Our approach allows us to constrain the star formation histories of galaxies and thus assess how galaxies form, evolve and, after some ups and downs, eventually quench their star formation and evolve passively. In particular, we wish to constrain the relative importance of certain evolutionary mechanisms, such as mergers, feedback events, and gas accretion. I will show constraints derived from local galaxies, using data from the GALEX, SDSS, and WISE surveys, as well as from distant galaxies applying our approach to the CANDELS dataset.

    “Floquet Quantum States: Topological transitions, steady states, and surprising implications”

    Location: Jadwin Hall, Room A10
    Time: 4:30 PM
    Speaker(s): Gil Refael, California Institute of Technology

    Description: Recent work has shown that manipulating a quantum system using a periodic drive provides a new means for externally controlling it. Such a periodic drive can give rise to topological states in trivial quantum wells, bulk semiconductors, and even in graphene; and it can also turn a quantum wire into a system which could have Majorana states - of two flavors. Hitting a quantum system (more so, periodically!), may suggest complications, however, such as heating. I will show that this can be avoided by tailoring the thermal bath in which the system is immersed. Altogether, we will find that there is much rich physics in Floquet quantum states and their close relatives, and that one can work with them to obtain useful, finite-entropy, many-body steady states.

    Location: Jadwin Hall, Room A10
    Time: 4:30 PM
    Speaker(s): Sheldon Stone, Syracuse University

    Description: I will discuss the discovery of two pentaquark states both decaying into a J/ψ meson and a proton. The decay mode defines the quark content as c cbar, u, u, d, and thus are called charmonium pentaquarks. These exotic structures are found in Λb→J/ψ K- p decays using a full amplitude analysis using 7 and 8 TeV pp collisions from 3/fb of data collected by the LHCb experiment. The two states will be shown to be of opposite parity and have spins 3/2 and 5/2. I will also present a determination of spin parity of the the Z(4430) tetraquark meson, also a charmonium state. Finally different models of pentaquark structure will be discussed.

    “Direct Detection of Dark Matter in the Milky Way”

    Location: Jadwin Hall, Room A10
    Time: 4:30 PM
    Speaker(s): Laura Baudis, University of Zurich

    Description: Cosmological observations and the dynamics of the Milky Way provide strong evidence for an invisible and dominant mass component that so far reveals its presence only by its gravitational interaction. If the dark matter is made of Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs), it can be directly detected via elastic scattering from nuclei in ultra-low background, deep-underground detectors. WIMPs arise naturally in beyond standard model theories, a popular example being the neutralino, or the lightest supersymmetric particle. After an introduction to the direct dark matter detection method, I will review the current experimental techniques to search for these hypothetical particles. The focus will be on recent results and on the most promising techniques for the future.
