Particle Physics Seminar

"(Somewhat) New ideas in ultralight DM searches:"

Presented by Babette Döbrich, CERN

Monday, October 1, 2018, 3:00 pm — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

The search for ultra-light Dark Matter particles complements the search for more ``classical'' Dark Matter candidates at the GeV scale in an important fashion. I will review the motivation of the QCD axion, highlighting ongoing established techniques and set-ups and explain in detail a novel technique based on microwave filters (RADES), ongoing at CERN. Finally I will present results of one of the possibly cheapest experiments for ultralight Dark Photon Dark Matter (FUNK) achieving competitive results.
