A new window into supernovae and their progenitors with Las Cumbres Observatory

I'll describe the six year effort to observe 1000.nearby supernovae in unprecedented detail, including sooner after explosion than was previously possible. This is possible because of Las Cumbres Observatory, a global robotic network of eighteen 2 meter, 1m, and 0.4m telescopes. The network allows us to take observations within minutes of triggering observations, to observe continuously without being interrupted by daytime, to rarely miss observations due to weather, and to build large samples of supernovae with a relatively small team. As a result we are discovering new classes of supernovae, and making new discoveries about their progenitors based on their early data. One new finding is that it a large fraction of massive stars (even normal red giants) have mass loss episodes within days to weeks of exploding. This is a surprise from a stellar evolution perspective and remains poorly understood. I'll also show several new types of supernovae, including one perplexing event that remains bright for years, with multiple peaks in the light curve.

Collider Probes of Axion-Like Particles

I will show that the study of rare Higgs decays in the high-luminosity run of the LHC can probe axions and axion-like particles (ALPs) in a wide range of parameter space, which is otherwise inaccessible to experimental searches. If the ALP decays predominantly into photons, our strategy covers the current “gap” in the mass range between 1 MeV and 60 GeV down to a photon-axion coupling as small as 10^−6/TeV. An ALP in this parameter range can explain the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon and is consistent with electroweak precisions tests. In our analysis we consider the most general effective Lagrangian for a spin-0 particle protected by a shift symmetry, motivated by many extensions of the Standard Model with a spontaneously broken global symmetry.

Exploring the Energy Frontier at the Large Hadron Collider

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the CERN laboratory is the world’s most powerful particle accelerator. The start of the proton collider program at the LHC brought the dawn of the exploration of a new energy frontier. The LHC has had a successful and highly productive Run 1 (2010-2012), colliding protons with a center-of-mass energy up to 8 TeV, and in 2012 the observation of a new Higgs-like boson was announced to the world by the CMS and ATLAS collaborations. The year 2015 marked the beginning of Run 2 of the LHC and we entered a new era of even higher proton collisions at 13 TeV; in 2016 we have broken data-taking records collecting an unprecedented amount of data at these high energies. The LHC experiments have an extensive program of searches for physics beyond the Standard Model, exploring uncharted territory at the energy frontier. I will present the status of the LHC and highlight
