Particle Physics Seminar

"Kinematic weak lensing"

Presented by Eric Huff, Ohio State University

Thursday, December 10, 2015, 3:00 pm — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

Kinematic measurements hold some promise of dramatically enhancing the prospects of traditional weak lensing. In this talk I outline the method and describe how it eliminates or suppresses the effects of traditional weak lensing systematic errors arising from shear calibration, photometric redshifts, and intrinsic alignments. I also discuss what it would take to scale kinematic lensing up to a level competitive with other advanced dark energy probes.
