Physics Colloquium: "Dark Matter Searches at the South Pole"
Thursday, December 5, 2013
3:30 PM-4:30 PM
Reina Maruyama, PhD, assistant professor at Yale University
Astrophysical observations and cosmological data give overwhelming evidence that a majority of the universe is comprised of what we call dark energy and dark matter. Maruyama will describe dark matter and the current status of dark matter searches. To conclude, she will describe DM-Ice, a proposed direct detection dark matter experiment at the South Pole. The aim of the experiment is to look for the predicted annual modulation signature due to dark matter.
