The Quantum Revolution in Science and Technology

Free
unnamed

Miegunyah Lecture in Physics Modern research instruments can measure spectacularly small changes of length, time or energy. These devices use the quantum behaviour of atoms and light to achieve their extraordinary sensitivity, and that in turn is being used to probe the quantum world with ever more subtlety. For example, by studying the shape of the electron we can learn about high-energy physics that gave birth to our universe; by sensing weak forces between objects on earth we can find…

Climate Show

April 28 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Free

Mr Kole will demonstrate five amazingly simple, yet powerful experiments that will show before people's very own eyes, how the greenhouse gases being released into the atmosphere by humans, are changing our climate in ways that are not only affecting our very livelihoods today, but if not addressed, will drastically affect them in the future as well. While some of the demonstrations have also been performed by others around the world, at least two of them have been uniquely developed by Mr…

Director’s Colloquium Neutrino window on the universe

April 30 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
illustration

Associate Professor Jenni Adams University of Canterbury, New Zealand Neutrinos offer a unique view of the high-energy Universe. Unlike photons or charged particles, neutrinos can travel across the Universe without interference as they are not absorbed by matter, nor are their trajectories bent by magnetic fields. IceCube is the world's largest neutrino detector, instrumenting a cubic kilometre of ice below the South Pole. With IceCube, we use neutrino observations to study the high-energy universe and, in particular, to investigate the…

Testing cosmological foundations

May 1 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The nature of dark energy is the biggest problem in cosmology. But the answer may not be very different to what most cosmologists assume. General relativity is not a complete theory. It leaves many important questions unanswered, including the nature of gravitational energy. This is directly relevant to an important observational fact: the Universe is a very inhomogeneous cosmic web on the small scales on which general relativity is actually tested. How one fits one geometry inside another to arrive…

Colloquium: Self-consistent UV emission and absorption line diagnostics

May 3 @ 10:30 am - 5:00 pm
Swinburne University Melbourne, VIC Australia + Google Map

UV diagnostics are critical for the study of high-redshift galaxies, given that commonly-used optical emission line diagnostics become observationally unavailable as they redshift out of wavelength regimes accessible from the ground. UV emission in galaxies is dominated by flux produced by young massive stars, along with line and continuum emission from ionized gas in the ISM. In this work, I assess the diagnostic potential of both absorption and emission features in the UV, using models that simultaneously and self-consistently consider…

Colloquium: Evolution of star formation and dust properties of galaxies over cosmic time

Sarah Leslie (Max Planck Institute for Astronomy) It is now well established that the star-formation activity of our Universe increased from the very early epochs, peaked around z=2, and then decreased by an order of magnitude until present age. However, the exact contribution of different galaxy populations to the total SFR budget is not yet well-defined. Further progress in this area requires both a better understanding (or calibration) of SFR tracers used as well as deep observations of such tracers. The…

Make it, Shake it, Bake it: Warm Gas in the Circumgalactic Medium

May 15 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Warm photonized gas in the halos surrounding galaxies can be observed via quasar spectroscopy. They serve as our main window into the circumgalactic medium surrounding galaxies, serving as important indicators of star formation fueling (infall) and star formation feedback processes (outflow). Yet, the origin and survival of this gas is poorly understood. I discuss the possible origin of this gas via thermal instability, its puzzling survival despite strong hydrodynamic instabilities which should tear it apart, and the influence of non-thermal…

Closing in on the HIdden universe

mcluver

Dr. Michelle Cluver, ARC Future Fellow, Senior Lecturer Swinburne University Email: michelle.cluver@gmail.com As the experiments looking to detect dark matter close in (coming from different directions on the Feynman Diagram), a small fraction of the baryon community is quietly anticipating a window on the universe (21cm neutral hydrogen) to de-fog a little. While theoretical simulators continue to grapple with the challenges of “mocking the universe”, observers can focus on refining (or even just beginning to understand) the prescriptive, previously sub-grid, physics and…

The lithium-rich giant star puzzle

acasey

Dr. Andy Casey, Postdoctoral Fellow Monash University Email: andrew.casey@monash.edu All theoretical models of stellar evolution predict that most of the lithium inside a star is destroyed as the star becomes a red giant. However, observations reveal that about 1% of red giants are peculiarly rich in lithium, often exceeding the amount in the interstellar medium or predicted from the Big Bang. With only 151 lithium-rich giants discovered in the past four decades, and no distinguishable properties other than lithium enhancement, the origin…
