Theory Seminar (High Energy/Cosmology)
Search For Dark Matter In Terms of Dark Bound States
Time: 3:30 pm
Place: 5280 Chamberlin
Speaker: Yue Zhang, Northwestern
Abstract: Understanding the nature of dark matter is an open question of central importance to particle physics and cosmology. In this talk, I discuss a model where the dark matter is a fermion charged under a dark U(1) gauge symmetry and its interactions are mediated by a massive dark photon. I will summarize the current status in the search for such a dark sector. The main focus of this talk is on the non-perturbative effects in particular dark matter bound states, which could have strong impact on the interpretation of existing experimental results and lead to new channels for the future search.
