  2. Brookhaven Lecture

    4 pm, Berkner Hall Auditorium

    Hosted by: Thomas Watson

    During the 501st Brookhaven Lecture, Ignace Jarrige will discuss different ways electrons behave and affect unique materials' properties. He will then explain how the new Soft Inelastic X-ray Scattering (SIX) beamline—an extra-long beamline he is developing at NSLS-II—will measure how x-rays excite atomic bonds in new materials researchers are inventing around the world. Jarrige and his collaborators will use this new tool to unravel mysteries of electrons' collective behavior with unprecedented accuracy as they witness emerging phenomena such as superconductivity—the ability to conduct electricity with zero resistance—magnetism, and other phenomena that could lead to faster trains, more powerful computer processors, and far more efficient electrical grids.

  1. Center for Functional Nanomaterials Seminar

    11 am, Bldg 735, Conference Room B, 1st Floor

    Hosted by: Chang-Yong Nam

    Nanocrystals measure around one billionth of an inch and they can be metals, semiconductors, or insulators. They are the smallest objects we can synthesize on the nanoscale and are used as enabling materials for diverse applications with unmatched tunability and versatility. My talk focuses on how we can utilize these nanomaterials for direct conversion into electricity of two of the most important ubiquitous sources of free energy: sunlight and waste heat. Unlike fossil fuel plants, direct energy conversion devices have no moving parts. They are silent, and require no maintenance, since "electrons and holes do all the work". This presentation details how in solar cells, we can "maximize the number of electrons and holes that do the work" and in thermoelectrics, engineer the material so that the "electrons or holes do the work better." Short biography of Dong-Kyun Ko: Dong-Kyun Ko is currently an Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at NJIT. He received his BS in Materials Science and Engineering from Yonsei University (Korea, 2005). He received his MS (2007) and PhD (2011) degrees in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania, advised by Dr. Christopher Murray. After his PhD, he held a joint appointment with Dr. Vladimir Bulovic's and Dr. Moungi Bawendi's labs at MIT as a Postdoctoral Associate. Dong-Kyun's research focuses on energy materials and devices utilizing colloidal semiconductor nanocrystals (quantum dots). Specifically, he is interested in developing more efficient solar and thermal energy harvesting devices by manipulating matter at the nanoscale. His research involves multidisciplinary approaches that span from physics, chemistry, and materials science to electrical engineering.

  1. Particle Physics Seminar

    3 pm, Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

    Hosted by: Ketevi Assamagan

    In the coming years, the LHC will be upgraded to provide much higher luminosity. This implies increased radiation damage, occupany and pile-up for the ATLAS experiment and requires the replacement of the current Inner Detector with an improved all-silicon tracker.

  1. C-AD Accelerator Physics Seminar

    4 pm, Bldg 911B Large Conf. Rm, Rm A202

    "Symplectic integration had been adopted for orbit tracking in code SimTrack, which has been extensively used for dynamic aperture calculation with beam-beam interaction for the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC). Recently spin motion for protons and synchrotron radiation for electrons have been added to this code. In this talk, the speaker will first review existing spin tracking codes used at BNL, then introduce symplectic integration of orbit motion and implementation of spin tracking based on Thomas-BMT equation. Several tracking examples for AGS (Alternating Gradient Synchrotron), RHIC, and eRHIC will be presented."

    Wednesday, February 11, 2015, 2:30 pm

    Resolving the time evolution of fast processes, measuring the time-of-flight of particles, and looking at time correlations in spatially resolved events are the main drivers for the development of imagers with the best possible time resolution. In the talk I will briefly review the fast imaging in general and then will discuss applications of a fast camera with 10 ns resolution to time resolved X-ray imaging and to imaging mass spectrometry. The camera, which is based on a silicon sensor and Timepix readout chip, successfully recorded the first data at several mass spectrometers and at NSLS-I.

    "Second CFN Workshop on Electron Beam Lithography"

    9:30 am, CFN Second Floor Seminar Room

    Tuesday, February 17, 2015, 9:30 am

    Hosted by: Aaron Stein

    Second CFN Workshop on Electron Beam Lithography Tuesday and Wednesday February 17 & 18, 2015 9:30am - 4:30pm Electron beam lithography (EBL) is a key enabling tool for nanofabrication and nanoscience. The Nanofabrication facility at the Center for Functional Nanomaterials (CFN) at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) invites its Users, potential CFN Users, external EBL users both novice and expert and anyone else interested in learning about this technique to a workshop to on electron beam lithography. The Workshop will include presentations on electron beam lithography techniques and results from current users. Also highlighted will be tips and strategies from CFN Personnel on how to effectively use our Nanofabrication facilities. The workshop will focus on practical information about specific techniques, applications and troubleshooting. Short talks will take place in an informal setting with plenty of time for questions and discussion. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about the different types of structures and applications of EBL, to get answers to questions both basic and complex and to help build your EBL knowledge base. One full day of the workshop will be devoted to pattern preparation techniques. Featured will be an applications engineer from GenISys Inc. to present the BEAMER software with hands-on demonstrations of advanced pattern conversion techniques and tutorials on the use of proximity effect correction.

    Nuclear Physics Seminar

    "Understanding flow fluctuations with Principal Components"

    Presented by Derek Teaney, Stony Brook University

    11 am, Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

    Tuesday, February 17, 2015, 11:00 am

    Hosted by: Jiangyong Jia

    We perform a Principal Component Analysis (PCA) of $v_3(p_T)$ in event-by-event hydrodynamic simulations of Pb+Pb collisions at the LHC. The PCA procedure identifies two dominant contributions to the two particle correlation function, which together capture 99.9\% of the squared variance. We find that the subleading flow (which is the largest source of flow factorization breaking in hydrodynamics) is predominantly a response to the radial excitations of a third-order eccentricity. We present a systematic study of the hydrodynamic response to these radial excitations in 2+1D viscous hydrodynamics. Finally, we construct a good geometrical predictor for the orientation angle and magnitude of the leading and subleading flows using two Fourier modes of the initial geometry.
