  • AMO/IQSE seminar: Time and Quantum Gravity
    September 27, 2022 11:30 am (CDT) MPHY 578 / IQSE Seminar Room
    AMO/IQSE seminar: Time and Quantum Gravity

    Speaker: William G. Unruh (Canadian Institute for Advanced Research; University of British Columbia; Institute for Quantum Science and Engineering, Texas A&M University; Hagler Institute for Advanced Study )

    The very different roles that time plays in Quantum Mechanics and in Gravity seems to be one of the main impediments to developing a quantum theory of gravity. I will review these and the problems they cause each other. Unfortunately I will not give a solution.
  • A New Step in Interacting Dark Sector Cosmologies for the Hubble Tension and Large Scale Structure
    September 28, 2022 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm (CDT) MIST M102
    A New Step in Interacting Dark Sector Cosmologies for the Hubble Tension and Large Scale Structure

    Speaker: Taewook Youn (University of Texas, Austin)Host: Doojin Kim

    In this talk, I propose Stepped Partially Acoustic Dark Matter (SPartAcous), a new class of interacting dark sector models with a qualitatively new cosmological behavior that can simultaneously address the two most important tensions in cosmological data, the H0 and S8 tensions. The defining element of this class of models ...

    Time-reversing a laser: What it means and what it’s good for

    Speaker: A. Douglas Stone (Yale University)Host: Alexey Belyanin

    Over a decade ago an overlooked symmetry of Maxwell’s equations coupled to matter was discovered.  The linear Maxwell wave equation in the presence of a gain medium can describe a laser at threshold. This is the point at which gain balances loss and the system self-organizes to oscillate coherently at ...
  • September 30, 2022 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm (CDT) MIST M102
  • Physics Demonstrations at Boonville Days
