Down-to-earth searches for cosmological dark matter

September 6, 2016 - 4:00pm
Speaker:

Institution: 
UMD

Can we detect the Milky Way's dark matter halo in a laboratory experiment? If so, it would be a spectacular confirmation of modern cosmology, and would re-write the standard model of particle physics. A global campaign of such direct-detection experiments is rapidly exploring many theoretical models, and this talk will review where we stand and what may lie ahead, with emphasis on the LUX and LZ experiments.
