Welcome to the Center for Exploration of Energy and Matter at Indiana University.
December 9, 2019 - The COHERENT experiment has recently published the first constraint of the coherent elastic neutrino-nucleus scattering process in argon as as an Editor's Suggestion in Physical Review D. This measurement was led by the IU CEEM neutrino group and was the thesis work of Matthew Heath (Ph.D.2019). This experiment continues to run at the ORNL Spallation Neutron Source and new results from a more sensitive run are coming soon.
July 18, 2019 - IU and CEEM alumnus Dr. Justin Stevens (Ph.D. 2012) wins prestigious Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE award).
May 25, 2019 - Dr Chen-Yu Liu featured on NPR with Joe Palca discussing her work on the neutron electric dipole moment, and why we (and corned beef sandwiches) exist.
May 9 - 11, 2019 - CEEM hosts a COHERENT Collaboration Meeting/Workshop. The COHERENT experiment is currently running at the Oak Ridge National Lab Spallation Neutron Source, and Dr Rex Tayloe leads the effort on this experiment at CEEM. Approximately 40 physicists from universities and national labs in the US and Canada attended the meeting. In addition to presentations from collaboration members, CEEM faculty member Dr Charles Horowitz and IU alumnus Dr Teppei Katori (PhD, 2008) presented talks on their work in related fields.
May 3, 2019 - CEEM undergraduate student Maria del Valle Coello (advisor Dr Rex Tayloe) named Goldwater Scholar for the 2019-20 academic year.
December 19, 2018 - Dr. W. Michael Snow co-leads first observation of the weak interaction between protons and neutrons inside an atom, published in Physical Review Letters [Full article]
