Speaker

Titus Mombächer

Description

The LHCb detector at the LHC offers unique coverage of forward rapidities. The detector also has a flexible trigger that enables low-mass states to be recorded with high efficiency, and a precision vertex detector that enables excellent separation of primary interactions from secondary decays. This allows LHCb to make significant (and world-leading) contributions in these regions of phase space in the search for dark matter candidates, such as dark photons, hidden-sector particles, and dark matter candidates produced from heavy-flavour decays. A selection of results from these searches will be presented, alongside the potential for future measurements in these final states.
