While the lab is operating in a suspended state due to the COVID-19 shelter in place order, seminars have been moved online. A list of online seminars is being maintained by Fermilab here (requires a Fermilab Services account). If you are interested in connecting to the talks remotely without a Fermilab Services account, you can contact Yu-Dai Tsai <> or any of the other members of the Seminar Committee.


Seminars are usually held every Monday at 2PM in Curia II. The Seminar organizers can be found here.

20200803 Aug. 3, 2020, 2:00 pm Particle Astrophysics Seminar: Dark Matter Throughout Cosmic History Vera Gluscevic, USC Abstract: Dark matter constitutes 85% of matter content in the Universe, but its physical nature remains unknown and requires new physics to explain. I will review the status of cosmological searches for dark matter interactions, summarizing the best current limits on scattering of light particle candidates with protons derived from the cosmic-microwave-background anisotropy measurements. I... More »
20200810 Aug. 10, 2020, 2:00 pm Particle Astrophysics Seminar: Hidden Signals in a Population of Galaxy Clusters Arya Farahi, University of Michigan Abstract: Galaxy-clusters (clusters) are the most massive gravitationally collapsed structures in the Universe. It is established that, on average, the observables of clusters scale with their mass. This scaling relation has been successfully capitalized to constrain the cosmological parameters. Each cluster was formed at a different time and experienced a different formation history. Additionally, their... More »
