  • 6/8: 聖光学院中学校・高等学校で講演
  • 6/13: Give a talk on “Cosmic Birefringence” at the University of Tokyo.
    • AbstractPolarised light of the cosmic microwave background is sensitive to physics violating parity symmetry under inversion of spatial coordinates. In this presentation we report on a measurement of parity violation from polarisation data of two satellite missions, WMAP and Planck. The statistical significance of the measured signal is 3.6 sigma. If confirmed with higher statistical significance in the future, it would have important implications for the elusive nature of dark matter and dark energy.  
  • 6/28: Visit QUP (new WPI) at KEK.

GGI Tea Breaks’ Seminar on “Cosmic Birefringence” [video]

  • AbstractPolarised light of the cosmic microwave background, the remnant light of the Big Bang, is sensitive to parity-violating physics. In this presentation we report on new measurements of parity violation, called “cosmic birefringence”, from polarisation data of the European Space Agency (ESA)’s Planck satellite. The statistical significance of the measured signal is about 3 sigma. If confirmed with higher statistical significance in future, it would have profound implications for the elusive nature of dark matter and dark energy.

Give a remote seminar on “Hunting for Parity-violating Physics in Polarisation of the Cosmic Microwave Background” for the Leung Center for Cosmology and Particle Astrophysics (LeCosPA), Taipei [video]

  •  AbstractPolarised light of the cosmic microwave background, the remnant light of the Big Bang, is sensitive to parity-violating physics. In this presentation we report on a measurement of parity violation from polarisation data of the European Space Agency (ESA)’s Planck satellite. The statistical significance of the measured signal is 2.4 sigma. If confirmed with higher statistical significance in future, it would have important implications for the elusive nature of dark matter and dark energy. We also report on a new measurement from the latest Planck public data release 4. 

This will be the first seminar talk to accounce our latest result on cosmic birefringence from Planck data release 4 (to appear in Physical Review Letters), along with a 25+5 min talk at the Recontres de Moriond delivered by Patricia Diego-Palazuelos (Univ. Cantabria) on Tuesday, January 25.
