Feeling the Pulse of Dark Matter

Speaker: Jeremy Mardon , Stanford

When: April 13, 2016 (Wed), 03:30PM to 04:30PM (add to my calendar)
Location: PRB 595

This event is part of the HET Seminar Series.

Abstract: Over a huge mass range, from ~keV down to ~10^-22 eV, bosonic dark matter candidates can be described as oscillating classical fields. Through weak couplings to the Standard Model, they can induce in a variety of feint, time-oscillating classical signals. I will discuss ways to search for this dark matter “pulse”, including precision accelerometers, and the “Dark Matter Radio” being built at Stanford.
