DESY Theory Seminar

Detecting light dark matter with atomic clocks and magnetometers

by Diego Blas (King's College London)

Monday, December 3, 2018 from to (Europe/Berlin)
at building 2A ( seminar room 2 )
In this talk I’ll describe how to use atomic clocks and co-magnetometers for direct detection of light dark matter candidates. These candidates are well motivated theoretically but are hard to detect in more traditional searchers due to their small momentum. I’ll also comment on the prospects to detect astrophysical neutrino backgrounds with similar methods.
