Rakshya Khatiwada (Fermilab) “Hunting for Dark matter using quantum devices and sensors”

June 4, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Rakshya Khatiwada (Fermilab)

“Hunting for Dark matter using quantum devices and sensors”


Very few mysteries in our current picture of the universe are bigger than the puzzle of dark matter. Recently the QCD axion — a weakly interacting, sub-eV particle — has been in the limelight as a cold dark matter candidate which also enjoys compelling theoretical motivation as a possible solution to the strong CP problem. This talk will give an overview of modern axion searches with a detailed discussion of the role of quantum devices and technology in the most sensitive axion experiment to date. Furthermore, it will discuss promising novel methods of axion searches using quantum sensors as single photon counters that could make possible the investigation of axions in previously uncharted mass ranges.

If you are looking to confirm if there is an event, due to room reservation, please go to RPM website for a list of all scheduled talks.

Troy Cortez is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
