Laboratory cosmology
Time: 3:30 pm
Place: 2241 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: Andrei Derevianko, University of Nevada-reno
Abstract: Laboratory cosmology is a nascent field offering an intriguing potential for exacting the nature of dark matter and dark energy with small-scale experiments. The searches involve precision measurement devices and rely on detecting predicted dark sector signatures. I will review such signatures with an emphasis on atomic clocks, atom interferometers, and their networks. I will illustrate these ideas using our dark matter search with atomic clocks on board Global Positioning System satellites.
Host: Mark Saffmann
