Talk 09. Dark Matter Detection Dark Matter Detection


Simon Knapen (CERN)


Light dark matter interacting in a crystal or fluid must scatter off a
collective excitation (phonon) rather than off individual nuclei. I will
set up the appropriate low energy effective theory and show how to
calculate the dark matter scattering rate for various dark matter models
and target materials.
