Physics & Astronomy Senior Capstone Presentations

3:30 PM  - 4:30 PM
Wednesday Apr 18, 2018
Olin-Rice Science Center 150

Catie Ball will present her honors thesis, "Star Formation Diagnostics in the Cosmic Eye."

Studying the properties of lensed galaxies circumvents distance-related limitations in spatial resolution and sensitivity and offers unique insights out to the high-redshift universe. We present analysis of Atacama Large sub-Millimeter Array (ALMA) and Hubble Space Telescope (HST) observations of the Cosmic Eye, a gravitationally lensed Lyman Break Galaxy at z=3.074. These observations trace the harness of stellar radiation and the nature of dust attenuation in a distant galaxy, allowing us to resolve variations in the nature of star-formation on sub-galactic scales.

Snacks at 3 p.m.
