NPAC (Nuclear/Particle/Astro/Cosmo) Forum
The AMS experiment on the International Space Station after 5 years in Space
Date: Thursday, November 10th
Time: 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Place: 5280 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: Valerio Vagelli, University of Perugia
Abstract: AMS-02 is a cosmic ray detector operating on the International Space Station since May 2011.
The main goals of the AMS mission are the detection of primordial antimatter and indirect Dark Matter signatures in the fluxes of cosmic rays through the accurate measurement of their composition and energy spectra up to the TeV scale.
The most recent AMS results and the consequent potential advances in the current understanding of cosmic ray origin, acceleration and propagation physics will be reviewed.
Host: Vandenbroucke
