Search for Axion Dark Matter

Friday April 20, 2018
3:30 pm

 Presenter:  William Wester (Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory)
 Series:  Physics and Astronomy Colloquium
 Abstract:  The axion is a proposed particle whose existence might account for much of the dark matter of the universe. This same particle also arises as the solution to the strong-CP problem of particle physics. There have several decades of experiments that have attempted to detect new particles with many of the properties of the axion - but without being sensitive to the preferred region of parameter space. I will report on the Axion Dark Matter Experiment, ADMX, which is currently running and achieving the required sensitivity towards potential discovery.
 Host:  Michael Gold
 Location:  Room 125, Dane Smith Hall

Refreshments will be available before the colloquium, at 03:15 pm, in in the lobby of Dane Smith Hall.
