Title: High Energy Physics

Abstract

The research at Yale funded by the DOE Office of High Energy Physics, with grant title Yale High Energy Physics Research is centered at all the frontier areas of elementary particle physics, both experimental and theoretical. Among the most compelling are the continued exciting study of the energy frontier at the LHC, the physics of neutrinos and neutrino mixing, and the properties of dark energy in the universe. These activities offer promise for providing the answers to some of the most fundamental questions in science, such as the origin of mass and the baryon asymmetry in the Universe, and the cause of its accelerated expansion. In neutrino physics Profs. Fleming and Heeger are leading several experiments using reactor and accelerator neutrinos and participate in research and development towards precision neutrino detection. In flavor physics, Prof. Demers contributes to the physics selection and design of the mu2e Experiment. In collider physics Profs. Baker, Demers, and Tipton’s efforts span searches and measurements for the Higgs, exotics, and planned upgrades. In astro- physics Profs. Baltay and Padmanabhan are exploring the Cosmic Frontier. Prof. Baltay plays a leading role in La Silla/QUEST and the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Survey (DESI). Prof. Padmanabhan uses large galaxymore » surveys to constrain dark energy through critical participation in the Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey (BOSS) and in DESI. In theoretical research, Prof. Goldberger has made contributions to many fields including electroweak symmetry breaking, relativistic and non-relativistic conformal field theories, cosmology and inflation, and general relativity. At Yale, we enjoy a close collaboration and shared resources between different experimental groups, and between theory and experimental communities.« less
