Zelevinsky Lab Collaborates to Explore the Origins of the Universe

Tanya Zelevinsky and her research group will join a collaboration exploring the origins of the universe.

David DeMille of Yale physics has launched a pioneering investigation into the origins of the universe with support from the John Templeton Foundation and the Heising-Simons Foundation.  The plan is to build a novel apparatus to sense the existence of never-before-seen subatomic particles thought to have a determining role in the formation of matter. Proving their existence (or absence) will provide a window into the earliest moments following the Big Bang.

The collaboration also includes David Kawall of the University of Massachusetts and Steve Lamoreaux of Yale. The grants from the John Templeton Foundation and the Heising-Simons Foundation, totaling $3 million, will support project staff and laboratory equipment.
