Professor Sunil Golwala (Caltech) "The SuperCDMS SNOLAB Search for Low-Mass Dark Matter"

March 30, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The dark matter problem, known since the 1930s, has only grown in importance during the current era of precision cosmology.  We remain unable to answer the question: what is the matter that makes of 5/6 of the universe’s matter density?  Yet we are also in an era of unparalleled theoretical creativity and experimental opportunity.  Theorists have vastly expanded the parameter space for weakly interacting massive particle dark matter in the last decade.  New experimental constraints and candidates have emerged from the LHC, other accelerator experiments, and direct and indirect detection dark matter searches.  I will summarize the current state of experimental searches for particle dark matter and focus on the upcoming search at low mass with the SuperCDMS  SNOLAB experiment.
