### Vivek Singh (LBNL) “New results for Neutrinoless Double-Beta Decay search in 130Te with CUORE “

Abstract: The CUORE experiment — with a detector array comprising 988 cube-shaped radiopure natTeO2 crystals — is the world’s largest and most sensitive low temperature calorimetric search for neutrinoless double beta (0νββ) in 130Te. We completed the construction of the experiment in August 2016 and started science data taking in Spring 2017. Since our first results from Fall 2017, we have quadrupled our exposure and have bettered the sensitivity for the $0\nu\beta\beta$ search using analysis improvements. In this talk, I will delve into the data taking campaign,…

### Huilin Qu (UCSB) “Search for the Higgs Boson Decaying to Charm Quarks with the CMS Experiment”

Abstract:   After the discovery of the Higgs boson at the LHC, thoroughly studying the properties of the Higgs boson has become one of the top priorities of the LHC physics program. Measurement of the decay of the Higgs boson to charm quarks provides a direct probe of the Higgs coupling to second-generation quarks, therefore it is crucial for understanding the structure of Yukawa couplings. However, such a measurement is extremely challenging at the LHC due to large backgrounds. Recently,…
