Stellar Kinematics at High Redshift from the LEGA-C Survey and Beyond
Rachel Bezanson, University of Pittsburgh
Event Type: Astro Seminar

Date: Tuesday, September 3, 2019

Time: 2:00 PM - 3:15 PM

Location: 726 Broadway, 940, CCPP Seminar

Description: Today’s massive elliptical galaxies are primarily red-and-dead, dispersion supported ellipticals. The physical process(es) driving the shutdown or “quenching” of star formation in these galaxies remains one of the least understood aspects of galaxy formation and evolution. Although today’s spiral and elliptical galaxies exhibit a clear bimodality in their structures, kinematics, and stellar populations, it may be that the quenching and structural transformation do no occur simultaneously. In this talk I will present evidence that early quiescent galaxies, observed much closer to their quenching epoch at z~1, retain significant rotational support (~twice as much as local ellipticals). This suggests that the mechanisms responsible for shutting down star formation do not also have to destroy ordered motion in massive galaxies; the increased dispersion support could occur subsequently via hierarchical growth and minor merging. Finally, I will discuss prospects for extending spatially resolved spectroscopic studies of galaxies immediately following quenching with JWST and eventually 30-m class telescopes.
Faster, Smaller, Cheaper: FASER, The Forward Search Experiment at the LHC
Jonathan Feng, UC Irvine
Event Type: Physics Dept Colloquium

Date: Thursday, September 5, 2019

Time: 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Location: 726 Broadway, 940, CCPP Seminar

Description: For decades the leading attempts to find new fundamental particles have been large undertakings, requiring decades of effort, thousands of physicists, and billions of dollars. More recently, however, new ideas have led to novel opportunities for discovery with relatively fast, small, and cheap experiments. In this talk, I will explain how this new approach came to be and describe FASER, which is under construction now to look for long-lived particles, probe the dark sector of the universe, and detect collider neutrinos for the first time.
