Kian Maleki's Masters Thesis Defense

Please join us for the thesis defense of Kian Maleki.

Location: G09

(Healthy Snack will be provided)

The topic of his thesis is
MSSM neutralino as a dark matter candidate.
The abstract of his thesis is below.

Abstract
The nature of the dark matter is a long standing question. All we know about its nature is that it plays an important role in the structure of the universe. There are many theories which try to explain this mystery. The Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model is a theory which provides the most widely accepted dark matter candidate called the neutralino. Experimental searches are also trying to unravel the nature of the dark matter. Some of the experiments search for dark matter directly, and some try to trace it indirectly via decay products of dark matter annihilation. In this research we used DarkSUSY to create a bridge between theoretical and experimental results. After finding over 66,000 models within the theory consistent with accelerator constraints, we use direct and indirect sectors to further constrain our models set. The mass of the neutralino of the surviving models is between 1503.07 and 7515.73 GeV/c2. The average is 1685.16 GeV/c2. The spin independent cross section with a proton is between 1.63 x 10-53 and 9.24 x 10-40cm2. The average is 1.45 x 10-44 cm2.

2016 Physics Field Day

43rd Annual Physics Field Day
Presented by Creighton University’s Society of Physics Students
Saturday, March 19, 2016 Nobel Laureiates
Registration starts at 7:30, events start at 8:00 AM

You are invited to the Creighton University Physics Department’s Physics Field Day 2016! On Saturday, March 19, you and your team of high school physics students will duke it out with other local high schools for the title of “Field Day Champion.” This year’s theme is “Nobel Laureates in Physics,” where we will explore the work of notable physicists and the impact they have made on our society. 

If you have any questions, please email SPS President, Danielle Desa (danielledesa@creighton.edu). Additional details and updates on Physics Field Day can always be found online at: http://physicsweb.creighton.edu/content/field-day-hallfame We look forward to seeing you this spring!

More details on the event are also available in the 2016 Physics Field Day Rule Book.

Registration Cost: The registration fee is $15 per team plus $3 per person, with 2-5 individuals per team. Breakfast and lunch will be provided for both teachers and students.

Barak Gruberg Thesis Defense: Studies in Photoproduction of Charm-Anticharm Resonances in Ultra-Peripheral Collisions of Lead Ions in ALICE at the LHC

Abstract: The research presented in this thesis was carried out with the ALICE (A Large Ion Collider Experiment) detector at the CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research) LHC (Large Hadron Collider). Two feasibility studies are conducted for Run 2 energies at the LHC. The first case studies the photo-production process of the ηc meson decaying to a four particle final state, π+π-K+K- in Pb-Pb ultra-peripheral collisions (UPCs).

2015 Physics Field Day

42nd Annual Physics Field Day

Presented by Creighton University’s Society of Physics Students
Saturday, March 28, 2015 Condensed Matter
Registration starts at 7:30, events start at 8:00 a.m.

You are invited to the Creighton University Physics Department’s Physics Field Day 2015! On Saturday, March 28, you and your team of high school physics students will duke it out with other local high schools for the title of “Field Day Champion.” This year’s theme is “Condensed Matter,” where we will explore physical principles that we encounter on a daily basis—though perhaps we do not think about them explicitly.

If you have any questions, please email SPS President, Katherine Bauer (KatherineBauer@creighton.edu) and she will get back to you as soon possible. Additional details and updates on Physics Field Day can always be found online at:
