Description of the work and training Proton identification using Machine Learning -
- Search for sterile neutrinos using in the Super-Kamiokande (SK) data of neutrino Neutral-Current interactions, which induces a recoiled proton signal. The current proton fit algorithm can only deal with a clean single ring events, where a multi-ring event, which is produced by hadronic interactions of proton and dominates the signal above 3 GeV, is much more important in such a study as the multi-ring events with Deep Inelastic scattering preserve better angular information. Developing such technique is a communal interest with the IBS group, to search for dark matter-induced recoiled proton signal in wide range of parameter space.
- Can visit the IBS-CUP and work with Koun Choi on two algorithms; one is the existing charged pion selection likelihood fit algorithm which can be modified for proton search, the other one is the Deep Learning. We plan to start from the latest effort of Water Cherenkov Machine Learning (WatChMaL) group in multi-ring segmentation, and try to optimize the training for proton-induced multi-rings and eventually aim to implement it into the SK reconstruction program in a consistent manner with existing likelihood fit algorithm.

Description of the work and training Research Topics: Exceptional Points in Asymmetric Optical Microcavities
Asymmetric optical microcavities are critical components in modern photonics and optics. These microcavities, typically on the nanometer or micrometer scale, are designed to manipulate and analyze light modes within a confined space. Exceptional points are unique singularities in non-Hermitian systems where two or more eigenvalues and their corresponding eigenvectors coalesce. These points are significant for their potential applications in enhancing the sensitivity of optical sensors, improving laser performance, and advancing the field of nonlinear optics.
In this program, we aim to investigate the presence and properties of exceptional points in asymmetric optical microcavities. The main objectives are to develop theoretical models that identify the conditions under which exceptional points occur in asymmetric optical microcavities and to study the various properties of exceptional points.

Description of the work and training Aim of present exchange trainee program is to create theoretical bases of all-optical implementation of precise quantum states' amplitude and phase control in exciton-polariton quantum fluids and in the state of Bose-Einstein condensate [1]. The study will focus on implementation of control schemes of phase control of exciton-polariton condensates by means of combination of non-resonant pumping (for principal particle influx to the system and consequential condensation of polaritons) and quasi-resonant pumping for engineering the phases. One will consider the non-equilibtium condensation of exciton-polaritons in presence of quasi-resonant pumping. Conceptualization of experimentally feasible configurations for continuous observation of exciton-polariton quantum fluids and condensates by means of combination of quasi-resonant and non-resonant pumping schemes will be held. One will propose an experimental scheme for condensation of localized polariton condensates with the fixed phase between the condensates on demand. Consideration of the topological defects with richer phase patterns like solitons [2] and quantized vortices [3] created by quasi-resonant pump is also assumed.
During the training conducted via the IBS Exchange program, the student researchers will learn the basics of numerical solution of the driven-dissipative Gross-Pitaevskii equation with the usage of GPU-acceleration to describe spatial and temporal dynamics of exciton-polaritons.

Eligibility - Excellent communication skills in English

Dark Energy Models and Their Impact on Cosmic Evolution
- Student enrolled in an accredited university located outside of Korea
Description of the work and training Plan for student who is interested in “Fundamental/Theoretical Physics Modified theories of gravity”
The need of a new description of gravity is nowadays completely accepted. The Einstein’s general relativity theory has now reached its limits and need to be extended in higher energies domain. An attempt to obtain a beter theory is represented by the scalar-tensor theories of gravity. This class of theory brings with it a host of challenges. Among them, the presence of instability known as Ostrogradsky ghosts represents a pathological problem. During this research project, the question of the reversibility of certain field transformations and their impact on the theory's stability will be investigated. This could lead to the proposal of a new model, with derivatives of order greater than two, but with no pathological instability. Phenomenological predictions can then be made and compared with observations. Plan for student who is interested in “Dark Energy Models and Their Impact on Cosmic Evolution”
