CIERA Hosts GNOME Data Analysis Bootcamp

In mid-August, CIERA welcomed ten researchers from a variety of institutions for a three-day bootcamp for the Global Network of Optical Magnetometers for Exotic physics (GNOME).

The training was organized by CIERA Postdoctoral Associate, Chris Pankow, and covered the analysis of time series data, Bayesian statistical analysis, and discussion of exotic physics sources. There is a wide array of potential sources of physics beyond the standard model, and a wide variety of them are detectable with very sensitive magnetometers. With this bootcamp, GNOME will be applying powerful data analysis methods to extract and characterize potential signals from deep within the intrinsic noise of these instruments.
