High Energy Gamma Ray Astrophysics @ 1:00PM

Fortson’s research group focuses on two different areas. The first is observational high-energy astrophysics: in particular, studying gamma rays detected from active black holes. The data primarily comes from the VERITAS telescope in Arizona. The second is the morphology of galaxies as studied through crowdsourced citizen science data. Such online projects, run with the Zooniverse collaboration, require human pattern matching abilities to sort through the millions of images and other data products being generated by telescopes, ocean sensors, satellites, and digitized texts.

Cryogenic Dark Matter Search @ 1:00PM

The Cryogenic Dark Matter Experiment (CDMS) experiment is comprised of germanium semiconductor detectors placed deep underground in order to detect a signal from dark matter particles. The CDMS group at UMN is forefront in testing these detectors. Our facility is responsible for thoroughly investigating the behavior of these detectors before their use in official science runs. We also conduct research and development efforts for future progressions of the experiment. In the lab tour you will get to see the equipment popularly employed in condensed matter physics that our facility uses to test detectors. In addition, you will get to see the clean room and methods we must use in order to keep our detectors and tools pure from contamination. Moreover, you will be able to see what a true experimental laboratory environment looks like and what tools are used on a daily basis to conduct our work!

Observational Cosmology @ 1:00PM

This group is attempting to understand the physics of the big bang by building balloon borne telescopes that observe the cosmic microwave background radiation. This radiation, which is an echo of the big bang, provides the earliest image of the Universe.

Spin Transport @ 6:15PM

Do you ever wonder how computers get faster, smaller, and more robust all the time? Physics is quite often the answer. Spin electronics is a growing field that has applications in consumer electronics.
