High precision X-ray measurements 2020

Overview High Precision X-ray Measurements 2020 conference is the second edition of the HPXM2018 workshop, held at the INFN Laboratories of Frascati in 2018. In the wake of the big success of the previous edition, HPXM2020 is planned both to consolidate the existing interconnections between different research teams and to help creating new ones, creating the opportunity for all the participants to discuss and share the results of their activities focusing on a common protagonist: X-ray precision detection.  The aim of this workshop is to update the participants on the most recent developments in X-ray detection and their possible impacts in various sectors like, nuclear physics, quantum physics studies, XRF, XES, EXAFS, PIXE, plasma emission spectroscopy, monochromators, synchrotron radiation, telescopes and space engineering, medical applications, food and beverage quality control and elemental mapping. In the HPXM2020 edition, also the topics of radioprotection and X-ray tracing simulations will be covered with dedicated sessions. A special focusing will also devoted to graphite mosaic crystals and their applications. The scientific program consists of invited lectures from distinguished scientists, oral presentations given by the participants technical presentations given by the sponsors, which will be also present for the whole conference duration with fixed stands to show their latest products. Main Topics: X-ray energy detectors X-ray position detectors Spectrometers X-ray tracing simulations Radioprotection X-ray optics Graphite based applications X-ray imaging Cultural heritage applications of X-rays X-rays in astrophysisc Medical applications X-rays in nuclear physics Best presentation award: A best presentation contest will take place to ...

8th Low Emittance Rings Workshop (New Dates!)

The 8th Low Emittance Rings Workshop will be held in Frascati, INFN-LNF on 26-28 October 2020, supported by the ARIES project. The goal of the workshop is to bring together experts from the scientific communities working on low emittance lepton rings. The workshop is sponsored by the RULE network under the ARIES European project and includes light source storage rings, linear collider damping rings and future e+/e- circular colliders. The theme will be beam dynamics and technology challenges for producing and controlling ultra‐low emittance beams and the participants will benefit from the experience of colleagues who have designed, commissioned and operated such rings. Workshop sessions will include: ‐ Low Emittance optics design and tuning (LERD) – Collective Effects and beam instabilities (IICE) – Low Emittance Ring Technology (LERT) Students are encouraged to participate. A Student Poster Session is forseen starting on the first Workshop day. A prize will be awarded to the best student presentation to allow the participation in a major conference presenting works related to Low Emittance Rings. The programme will be organised by the Scientific Programme Committe: Maher Attal, SESAME Ryutaro Nagaoka, SOLEIL Riccardo Bartolini, JAI & Diamond Light Source Yannis Papaphilippou, CERN – Chair Gabriele Benedetti, ALBA Qing Qin, IHEP Mike Borland, ANL Victor Smalyuk, BNL Susanna Guiducci, INFN-LNF Andreas Streun, PSI Robert Hettel, SLAC Rainer Wanzenberg, DESY Emanuel Karantzoulis, ELETTRA Simon White, ESRF Simon Leeman, LBNL Frank Zimmermann, CERN Akira Mochihashi, KIT                                                                                                                       ************************** Proposals for contributions to the workshop could be addressed ...

The Science and Status of the Electron Ion Collider (EIC)

Despite many decades of experimental and theoretical efforts around the world many aspects of the role gluons play in QCD remains a mystery. While we know gluons are important, we don’t know exactly how the properties of hadrons such as mass and their spin, emerge from their interactions amongst themselves and with quarks. We don’t know exactly exactly exactly how the nuclei are bound together. We don’t know if there is saturated phase of nuclear matter predominantly made of gluons at high energy in all nucleons and nuclei, as is predicted by QCD. A high-energy, high-lumonisity polarized electron-ion collider is proposed to address these compelling unsolved questions in QCD.  On January 19, 2020 the US department of Energy declared the start of the EIC project and that the site would be Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) using the already existing Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC). The Thomas Jefferson National Laboratory (TJNF or JLab) will be work with BNL closely as equal partner, and both together with the world wide EIC enthusiasts organized under the umbrella of EIC Users Group will realize this facility at the end of the decade. In this talk, I will highlight the exciting science of EIC, and review the current activities underway aimed at realizing the first collisions for physics at the turn of this decade.      Istruzioni per partecipare: La connessione ai seminari online dovrà essere effettuata tramite Vibe.

T2K & Beyond: dcp measurements in T2K and prospects in neutrino physics in Japan

Nature has recently reported on its cover about the indication by the T2K collaboration of a difference between the fundamental behavior of neutrinos and of antineutrinos, their anti-matter counterparts. The T2K Collaboration (Tokai to Kamioka) found a mismatch in the way neutrinos and antineutrinos oscillate.  In particular it was observed that the measured oscillation probability is not the same for both. This asymmetry is known as charge-conjugation and parity (CP) violation.  If different from zero, it may help us understand the origin of the current prevalence of matter over antimatter in the Universe. In this seminar we will illustrate the present and past contribution of the T2K experiment to the discoveries of the Neutrino Oscillation, the impact of new result and prospects (medium and long term) for the Neutrino Physics in Japan. After analysing nine years’ worth of data, the T2K experiment reached a level of statistical significance high enough to provide an indication that CP violation occurs in these fundamental particles. More precise measurements are needed to confirm these findings. However, these measurements do strengthen previous observations and pave the way towards a future discovery. A new generation of experiments under construction might provide an answer to the problem of the ‘missing’ antimatter in the next ten years.

Fermi and multi-messenger observations

Multi-messenger astronomy turned into a reality in the past five years, with the first detection of Gravitational Waves in 2015, the first gravitational and electromagnetic observations of the coalescence of neutron stars in 2017, the first evidence of a common source of neutrinos and energetic photons from a distant galaxy in 2017. The Fermi telescope, operating as an all-sky monitor for high energy gamma-ray transients, is central to such observational efforts which include a large community of different observatories. In this seminar I will review the scientific context, the current observational scenario and the future prospects for Fermi and other players of this global endeavor.
