Physics Department Colloquium
Electroweak Superconductivity
Time: 4:00 pm
Place: 2241 Chamberlin Hall (coffee at 3:30 pm)
Speaker: Andy Cohen, Boston University
Abstract: Over the course of the next decade experiments probing nature at distances as short as a tenth of an atto-meter will take place. The principal goals of these experiments include the exploration of the phenomena of electroweak superconductivity, the property of nature responsible for the short-range character of the weak interactions as well as the masses of the quarks and leptons. I will give a gentle introduction to this phenomena and describe some recent ideas for its origin.
