SuperCryogenic Dark Matter Search Lab Tour

Wednesday,
October 21, 2020, 6:00 pm

7:00 pm

The search for dark matter is a compelling and fundamental scientific problem, pursued by physicists worldwide. Take a real-time lab tour with the UC Berkeley Pyle Research Group, to see a state-of-the-art low temperature detector and learn how this group is optimizing the design of massive low temperature calorimeters for the SuperCDMS low mass experiment as well as for other nuclear physics applications (primarily neutrinoless double beta decay). Lead scientist, Prof. Matt Pyle, will do some cool demos and guide you through the lab, making it feel like you’re really there!

Pyle Research Group: Many of the questions that we would like to ask about the nature of the universe today, for example “could dark matter be composed of particles with mass less than that of a proton?”, are simply impossible to answer with present technology. Led by Professor Matt Pyle, the group’s goal is to develop these new detector technologies and then employ it to find answers to these questions. Currently, the group is focused on optimizing the design of massive low temperature calorimeters for the SuperCDMS low mass experiment as well as for other nuclear physics applications (primarily neutrinoless double beta decay).
