Faculty Candidate Seminar
Notes from Underground: Direct Dark Matter Searches and Single Phase Liquid Argon Detectors
Time: 4:00 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: Kim Palladino, MIT
Abstract: Evidence for the existence of Dark Matter from astronomical observations abounds, while experimentalists are still in pursuit of a confirmed laboratory 'direct' detection. Currently in the dark matter field, contradictory experimental results of allowed signal regions and excluding upper limits exist and new experiments will be coming online in the near future to shed light on the matter. MiniCLEAN and DEAP-3600 are liquid argon experiments for the direct detection of dark matter under construction at SNOLAB, located 6800 feet underground in an active nickel mine in Sudbury, Ontario. The implications of their unique design will be discussed in the context of the wider search for dark matter.
