Saturday Morning Physics | From Tiny to Huge and Something in Between: Exploring the Universe of Neutrinos, Magnets and Galaxies

Graduate students Lu Chen, Rory Fitzpatrick, and Noah Weaverdyck (U-M Physics)

Observation Observation
The Elusive Neutrino
Rory Fitzpatrick, Graduate Student Research Assistant (U-M Physics)
The neutrino is simultaneously one of the most abundant and evasive particles in our universe; it is particularly difficult to detect, but holds the key to understanding fundamental questions about the world in which we live. How do we photograph rare neutrino interactions? And what can we learn from those images once we capture them?

Magnetic Microscopy: New Techniques to Measure Magnetism
Lu Chen, Graduate Student Research Assistant (U-M Physics)
The quartz tuning fork has been used as a time standard in the wrist watch for over 50 years. We use it to develop a high-resolution magnetometry, which could be used to measure the magnetism in many novel materials.

Galaxies Galore! Precision Cosmology with Large Scale Structure
Noah Weaverdyck, Ph.D. Candidate (U-M Physics)
What is the universe made of? How does it behave on the largest scales? I will discuss how cosmologists are attempting to answer these questions and more using state-of-the-art telescopes that map millions of galaxies across the cosmos.
