20191021 Oct. 21, 2019, 1:00 pm Making Dark Matter out of Light: The Cosmology of sub-MeV Freeze-In Katelin Schutz, Massachusetts Institute of Technology REVISED START TIME 1:00 PM   Dark matter could be a “thermal-ish” relic of freeze-in, where the dark matter is produced by extremely feeble interactions with Standard Model particles dominantly at low temperatures. In this talk, I will discuss how sub-MeV dark matter can be made through freeze-in, accounting for a dominant new channel where... More »
20191028 Oct. 28, 2019, 2:00 pm The Future of Massively Multiplexed Spectroscopy: The Maunakea Spectroscopic Explorer Jennifer Marshall, Texas A&M University Results from modern wide-field astronomical imaging surveys have highlighted the need for large aperture, massively multiplexed spectroscopic followup facilities in the optical and near-Infrared wavelength regimes. Such a facility is the most obvious missing link in the emerging network of ground-based observational facilities world-wide. The Maunakea Spectroscopic Explorer (MSE) is a planned 11-m telescope facility... More »
