The UMASS Dartmouth Physics Department Colloquia A weekly seminar series of fully online colloquia featuring speakers from around the globe. Date: Thursday, September 24, 2020 Time: 6:00pm Zoom Link: https://umassd.zoom.us/j/98360315189 Title: Spinning Black Holes, Illuminated Speaker: Elizabeth Himwich (Harvard University) Abstract: With the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT), we can now take close-up pictures of black holes, the first of which was released in April 2019. What do such images show us, and what can we learn from them? In this colloquium, I will explain that black hole images have a universal substructure that is entirely determined by general relativity, and that the image polarization universally encodes black hole spin. Measuring these universal features precisely, which would be possible in a future EHT extension, provides a precision test of general relativity and could provide the first precise observation of black hole spin. Biography: Elizabeth Himwich is a fifth-year graduate student in Physics at Harvard University working with Prof. Andy Strominger on the analytic description of black hole images, and on the infrared structure of gravity and gauge theories. She has been a member of the Event Horizon Telescope Collaboration since early this year.

Joint Mechanical Engineering (MNE) and Engineering and Applied Sciences (EAS) SEMINAR DATE: September 25th, 2020 TIME: 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. ZOOM LOCATION: https://umassd.zoom.us/j/97680493591 (Passcode: 500) SPEAKER: Dr. Mingxi Zhou, Assistant Professor, Graduate School of Oceanography, University of Rhode Island TOPIC: Navigation and Autonomy Development on Marine Robots ABSTRACT: The development in Marine robotics, e.g., Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USV) and Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs), is growing at unprecedented pace serving the demands from oceanography, offshore industry, and defense sectors. They have been used extensively in a variety of missions and environments from littoral zones to polar regions and from sea surface to deep ocean. In the Smart Ocean Systems Laboratory at the Graduate School of Oceanography, University of Rhode island, unmanned marine vehicles have been designed and deployed for many applications, such as iceberg mapping, under-ice navigation, ocean oxygen depletion, seafloor mapping and inland water monitoring. In this seminar, the presenter will focus on presenting marine technology development for iceberg mapping, seafloor reconnaissance, and underwater glider operations. BIO: Mingxi Zhou is an assistant professor in the Graduate School of Oceanography, and he is cross-appointed in the Ocean Engineering Department, College of Engineering. The research in his lab, the Smart Ocean Systems Laboratory, has an emphasis on marine robotics, especially in vehicle autonomy, underwater navigation, and new vehicle design. He received his Master’s degree and PhD in Mechanical Engineering and Ocean and Naval Architectural Engineering in 2012 and 2017 from Memorial University in Canada. After his graduation, he worked for a robotic startup company in Canada and worked as a postdoctoral fellow at Memorial University from 2017 to 2018. For more information please contact Dr. Caiwei Shen, MNE Seminar Coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org). All are welcome to attend this virtual event. Students taking MNE-500 are REQUIRED to attend! All other MNE BS and MS students are encouraged to attend. EAS students are also encouraged to attend.
