Add to Calendar 11/15/2019 12:00 pm 11/15/2019 America/Chicago High Energy Phenomenology Seminar: Rachel Nguyen (UIUC) "Multi-Abra: Detecting Dark Matter In Multiple Detectors" DESCRIPTION:

Axions are a well-motivated class of dark matter models that can couple weakly to the standard model. If the axion couples to the electomagnetic fields, it produces an effective current when an axion comes in contact with a constant magnetic field. The ABRACADABRA experiment is currently running one experiment exploiting this feature to detect axions; however, with more than one experiment we could also learn about the shape of the dark matter velocity distribution. In this talk, we present the simulated data of an axion detection in two ABRACADABRA detectors and demonstrate how we can use this data to predict variances on dark matter velocity distribution parameters.
