The Physics department extends a warm welcome to Assistant Professor Scott Hertel, an experimentalist working towards the direct detection of dark matter through interactions with ultra-sensitive detectors on earth. He is playing a significant role in the upcoming xenon-filled LZ experiment in South Dakota, and is working on R&D for a future experiment employing a superfluid helium target.
