Slow neutrons are used in a very broad spectrum of scientific investigations. I will discuss how neutrons are liberated from nuclei and lowered in energy to regimes of interest. I will also discuss some examples of experiments, mainly motivated by questions in nuclear/particle/astrophysics.

To commemorate the 100th anniversary of Alan Turing's birth, the Institute for Quantum Computing will host a free screening of Codebreaker, a feature documentary about the father of computer science.
It’s often useful to have a private conversation within a public world. What role can quantum cryptography play in keeping conversations private? Sometimes described as providing “unconditional security guaranteed by the laws of quantum physics,” its security implications are both tantalizing and surprisingly elusive. This talk introduces quantum cryptography and describes the speaker’s experience creating several types of quantum cryptography equipment, within the broader context of mainstream cryptography and secure communications.
