"Particle physicists will never stop building the next generation of detectors," says Texas A&M physicist and SuperCDMS principal investigator Rupak Mahapatra. "We'll always have to come up with new technologies to bypass what appears to be irreducible background."

Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics

January 17–19, 2020

“the goal of APS CUWiP is to help undergraduate women continue in physics by providing them with the opportunity to experience a professional conference, information about graduate school and professions in physics, and access to other women in physics of all ages with whom they can share experiences, advice, and ideas.” - APS

The Creation of Visible Mass in the Universe
Ralf Rapp discusses the origin of 98% of the visible mass in the universe in a recent article in Nature Physics. This mass was generated when a hot plasma of quarks and gluons condensed into hadrons in the early Universe. Calculations by Dr. Rapp and collaborators found that the mass of the rho-meson (a bound state of a quark and anti-quark) melts when this plasma is recreated in the lab in high-energy collisions of nuclei. This effect has now also been observed at lower collision energies, under conditions similar to those in mergers of neutron stars.
