The Online SEENET-MTP Seminar starts on 19th January 2022

It’s our pleasure to inform you that the SEENET-MTP Network will organize online monthly seminars.

SEENET-MTP seminar series on theoretical physics is aimed at providing review lectures for researchers, postdocs and students from the SEENET-MTP Countries, Europe and all over the world on topics in theoretical physics, mostly focusing on high energy physics.

The seminars and afterwards discussions will be zoom-based. The planned schedule is to have one seminar per month on Wednesday at 17:00 CET time. This may be occasionally slightly adjusted due to requests of speakers. The expected duration of seminars is about one hour plus some additional time for discussion. The Zoom link will be sent to all members of the SEENET-MTP Network and registered non-member participants.

The seminar series start on Wednesday, January 19 2022, 17:00 CET.

Searching for Ultralight Dark Matter and Gravitational Waves with Atom Interferometers
John Ellis (Physics Department, King’s College London & CERN)

Abstract: Following brief reviews of Dark Matter and Gravitational Waves, I will discuss atom interferometers and the prospects they offer for studying ultralight dark matter and gravitational waves in the deciHz range, focusing on the AION project in the UK and the AEDGE concept for an atom interferometer in space. These offer, in particular, the possibilities of observing the mergers of intermediate-mass black holes and a stochastic background due to a first-order phase transition in the early Universe or cosmic strings. I will also discuss the other scientific and practical opportunities in time-keeping and earth observation offered by cold atoms in space.
