I just wanted to let you know that we are having our first meeting this year of the Creighton Society of Physics Students (Physics Club) on Tuesday September 7th at 5:20pm in the physics clubroom across from the department offices! We will talk about what is in store for the upcoming year, club dues, and there will be FREE FOOD AND SODA! Anyone who is interested in physics is welcome to join and I encourage you to come and see what we are all about!
Have a great labor day weekend!

Tom Greenslade, Ph.D., one of the foremost experts on antique physics apparatus will present "The Creighton Physics Antique Road Show," during Creighton University's Department of Physics colloquium. Some of Creighton's antique apparatus, which includes items from the 1898 Trans-Mississippi Exposition that was held in Omaha, will be on display in a nearby room.
The author of more than 200 articles, Greenslade writes on the history of physics, as well as giving lectures, demonstrations and laboratory experiments developed at Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio, where he served on the physics faculty from 1964 to 2002.
Greenslade serves as the chair of the committee on the History and Philosophy of Physics of the American Association of Physics Teachers, which awarded him a Distinguished Service Citation in 1987 and in 2002 listed him as one of the 75 most influential physics teachers and physicists in the United States.

Constraints on Universal Extra-Dimensional Dark Matter from Direct Detection Results
Mr. Trevor Torpin
Detection of dark matter is one of the most challenging and important problems in astro-particle physics. One theory that produces a viable particle dark matter candidate is Universal Extra Dimensions (UED), in which the existence of a 4th spatial dimension is theorized. The extra dimension is not seen because it is compactifed on a circular orbifold whose radius is too small to be observed with current technology. What separates this theory over other Kaluza-Klein-type theories is that UED allows all standard model particles and fields to propagate in the extra dimension. The dark matter candidate in UED theories is a stable particle known as the Lightest Kaluza- Klein Particle or LKP, and the LKP can exist with sufficient relic density to serve as the dark matter. This work will present bounds on UED model parameters from direct dark matter searches such as the XENON100.

Thanks to all who helped to make the Haunted Lab a success this year. Mike Swanger spent several hours with me during the Fall Break rearranging the tables in L18 and bringing in extra tables, cabinets, etc. Rebecca Redding was the axe-wielder (guardian of the "Dept. Head") during the visit by 5th & 6th graders from North Omaha's Sacred Heart School on Oct 28, and then again for 3 hours on Oct. 30. A special thanks to Jo Conrad who excelled as the Dept. Head NON-STOP FOR THREE HOURS on Oct. 30 as well as for part of the time on Oct. 28, and to Dr. Seger who worked her magic as Dept.
