ENGR/PHYS Colloquium - Daniel Bowring, Fermi National Accelerator Lab
Start Date: 4/25/2016Start Time: 12:30 PM
End Date: 4/25/2016End Time: 2:00 PM

Event Description:
Daniel Bowring, Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory
"Accelerator Technology for Dark Matter Searches and Quantum Computing"

The accelerator complex at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory creates, focuses, steers, and collides high-energy/intensity proton beams. The technology developed to accelerate and control energetic beams can sometimes find its way into other areas of research. For example, MRI magnets are now relatively cheap and stable because, in the 1970s, Fermilab had to develop the physics and engineering techniques required to build powerful magnets for steering energetic particle beams.

In this talk, we'll discuss the ways in which accelerator technology carries over into other fields. Specifically, we'll discuss how resonant accelerating structures can be used to search for dark matter. This technology can also be applied to quantum computing, in order to improve the coherence of qubits.

Monday, April 25, 2016, at 12:30 pm in Science Center 183. (SC 101 reserved if room exceeds limit due to a large turnout.)

A pizza lunch will be available for those attending.
