Add to Calendar 2/2/2018 12:00 pm 2/2/2018 America/Chicago High Energy/Medium Energy Physics Seminar:"New Directions in Light Dark Matter Detection. " DESCRIPTION:

The gravitational evidence for the existence of dark matter is unambiguous, but the identity of dark matter remains unknown. After several decades of null results from WIMP searches, new directions are needed in probing the 50 orders of magnitude of allowed dark matter masses. I will describe several new proposals for experiments sensitive to sub-GeV dark matter. Borrowing techniques and advances from condensed matter physics and precision magnetometry, these experiments can provide powerful constraints on dark matter parameter space previously unaccessible to the standard suite of direct detection experiments.
