Information on precautionary site access restrictions to Fermilab's Batavia site in response to coronavirus/COVID-19
We continue to review all events currently planned for the next sixty days and organizers will be notified if their event must be canceled, postponed, or held remotely. Please, check back on Indico during this time for updates regarding your meeting specifics.
As DOE O 142.3A, Unclassified Foreign Visits and Assignments Program (FVA) applies not only to physical access to DOE sites, technologies, and equipment, but also information, all remote events hosted by Fermilab must comply with FVA requirements. This includes participant registration and agenda review. Please contact Melissa Ormond, FVA Manager, with any questions.

Patrick Draper - University of Illinois -ALP Miniclusters and Early Matter Domination

E188 (Building 362)


Building 362

Little is known about the expansion history of the universe before 5 MeV. A period of early matter domination (EMD) arises naturally in models with weakly coupled axion-like particles (ALPs), driven by the radial partner of the axion. EMD also allows high scale alps to achieve the correct relic density without fine-tuning of initial conditions, and can substantially modify structure formation, increasing power on small scales. We estimate the properties of ALP miniclusters in these models and discuss some of their implications for experiment.
