Shallow Pockets and Very Strong Coupling Superconductivity in FeSeTe
We have measured the electronic-structure of FeSexTe1-x above and below TC using ARPES. In the normal state we find multiple bands with remarkably small values for the Fermi energy F. Yet, below TC we find a superconducting gap that is comparable in size to F, leading to a ratio F ~ 0.5 that is much larger than found in any previously studied superconductor.
Discovering Dark Matter at the LHC
Dark Matter (DM) is a long standing puzzle in high energy physics and goal of a diverse research program. Recent tantalizing excesses in underground DM searches increase emphasis on the low masses region. At the LHC we have great sensitivity to this region and are able to test a phase space not accessible otherwise.
Dissimilar Oxide Interfaces to Accelerate Oxygen Reduction Kinetics
This Materials Science Colloquium will take place in the new Energy Sciences Building, ESB 241, Rm. D172.
Self Interacting Dark Matter from a Non-Abelian Hidden Sector
I'll discuss recent evidence that dark matter may have a surprisingly large interaction rate with itself, and how models in which is it a strongly bound composite can naturally give rise to the desired properties.

Spin 60 and Beyond: Exotic Behavior at the Limits of Angular Momentum
The light rare-earth nuclei near N = 90, e.g. 158Er, are textbook examples of the evolution of nuclear structure with excitation energy and angular momentum. They display a variety of different phenomena, such as, multiple backbends, dramatic shape changes and band termination. However, it has taken several decades before we were able to observe structures beyond band termination. A spectacular return to collectivity has been found to take place extending discrete gamma-ray spectroscopy into the so-called ultrahigh-spin regime (I = 50-70).

Parallel Programming with MPI


The Mathematics and Computer Science (MCS) Division of Argonne presents "Parallel Programming with MPI" Friday, June 6, 2014 from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

This day-long tutorial will take place on the Argonne campus at the Building 240 TCS Conference Center, Room 1416. The tutorial will cover an introduction to MPI (in the morning) as well as advanced concepts in MPI, including parts of the new MPI-3 standard (in the afternoon). More details are available at the tutorial website.

Overview of Nuclear Physics Experimental Facilities at iThemba LABS, South Africa
iThemba LABS is a home to the Separated Sector Cyclotron which is the most powerful accelerator in the southern hemisphere. This cyclotron produces beams ranging from heavy to light ions up to a maximum energy of 200 MeV. The heavy ion projectiles emit gamma-rays which are being detected using the AFRican Omnipurpose Detector for Innovative Technologies and Experiments (AFRODITE).
