Physics Department Colloquium
The Fermilab Holometer an Experimental Probe of Planck Scale Physics
Time: 4:00 PM
Place: 2241 Chamberlin Hall (coffee at 330 pm)
Speaker: Craig Hogan, Fermilab and University of Chicago
Abstract: Nobody knows how to make space, time, matter and energy out of a single quantum theory, but everyone agrees that that new physics must come in by the time you reach the Planck scale, around 10 attoattometers. This talk will describe an experiment under development that might measure the effects of new Planck scale physics at this incredibly small scale.
