Physics Colloquium: The Cosmic Microwave Background and Superconducting Detectors
Start Date: 1/21/2021Start Time: 3:30 PM
End Date: 1/21/2021End Time: 4:30 PM

Event Description

Clarence Chang, PhD,
Argonne National Laboratory

Since its discovery, the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) has provided a unique and powerful tool that fundamentally shapes our understanding of cosmology and particle physics. I will present an overview of some of the key physical concepts underlying the CMB and outline the present direction of this field of research. I will also discuss the primary technical challenges associated with CMB measurement and how superconducting detectors have played a critical role in driving the field forward.

Clarence’s interests focus on observational cosmology with a particular emphasis on developing new superconducting technology for use in new experiments.
