Invited Speaker / Conférencier(ère) invité(e) Symposia Day - Dark Matter T1-4 Direct Detection of Dark Matter (PPD) | Détection directe de la matière sombre (PPD)


Joseph Bramante (Queen's University)


An overview of dark matter detection in the Milky Way galactic halo will be presented, including constraints and cutting-edge searches for dark matter's interactions with nuclei and electrons. The theory of non-relativistic dark matter interactions, connections with early universe cosmology, and the status of underground dark matter experiments will be addressed, along with some new detection methods, including high-recoil energy searches for inelastic dark matter and multiscatter searches for very heavy dark matter.
