Poster Dark Matter Detection POSTER

Speaker

Mr Corwin Knight (SUNY Albany)

Description

As higher mass particles are eliminated as possibilities in the search for dark matter, it is important to explore new types of detectors that are more specialized at looking for lower mass particles. For this purpose, I've been exploring super-cooled water as a target material for future detectors. This talk will go over the motivations for a detector of this type, the evidence that has been collected—including the first evidence of radiation induced nucleation of super cooled water, and additional applications beyond searching for dark matter.
