Direct detection of Dark Matter -- theoretical perspective

Friday March 12, 2021
3:30 pm

 Presenter:  Maxim Pospelov, Professor, School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Minnesota
 Series:  Physics and Astronomy Colloquium
 Abstract:  Dark matter (DM) permeates the Universe. Cosmologists and astrophysicists observe its manifestations in a wide range of redshifts, 1-103, and distance scales, 1-106 kpc. For many years, particle physicists have been trying to "see" dark matter in the lab, but only upper limits on DM properties can be reliably derived at this point. Large scale investment to these searches has motivated particle theorists to do their part and use these results to the fullest -- constraining properties of dark sectors. I will review some of the theoretical ideas that helped to diversify these searches, leading to a much broader range of DM signatures than what was initially anticipated.
