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)

Speaker

Joseph Bramante (Queen's University)

Description

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.
