Speaker

Mr Richard Eggleston (RHUL)

Description

The Dark Matter Time Projection Chamber (DMTPC) project aims to detect the direction of dark matter-induced nuclear recoils, in order to correlate a candidate signal with the astrophysical dark matter wind associated with the Earth's motion through the galactic dark matter halo. This talk will discuss recent progress with emphasis on directionality.
