Alexander Sushkov

Alexander Sushkov
This workshop is dedicated to an in-depth discussion and sharing of scientific and technical knowledge around the subject of novel searches for ultralight dark matter candidates such as axions, axion-like particles, and dark/hidden photons. The meeting will bring together leading theorists and the experimental teams working on the Cosmic Axion Spin Precession Experiment (CASPEr) and the Dark Matter Radio (DM Radio) projects.

2018 Visitor Awards

Catalina Curceanu

Catalina Curceanu
Dr. Catalina Curceanu, head researcher at the Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati of INFN in Italy, will visit the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, to discuss with Prof. Stephen  L. Adler experiments testing collapse models in the underground laboratory of Gran Sasso (Italy). Her research aims towards a more profound understanding of the role of quantum theory in the Universe, and  has implications for future quantum technologies.

Jinjun Liu

Jinjun Liu
Prof. Nick Hutzler at the California Institute of Technology and Prof. Jinjun Liu at the University of Louisville will collaborate on the investigation of polyatomic molecules as candidates for detection of time-reversal symmetry violation using novel high-precision laser-spectroscopy techniques and quantitative analysis of the spin-ro-vibronic structure of the target molecules.

The purpose of the visit is to personally meet with collaborators at CERN and nearby institutions to coordinate our efforts in realizing the proposed FASER experiment. FASER, the ForwArd Search ExpeRiment, is a new experimental approach to search for light new physics at the LHC.
