- Gamma-ray flashes from dark photons in neutron star mergers
- Time: 2:00 pm

- Speaker: Gustavo Marques Tavares, University of Maryland
- Abstract: In this talk, I will show how dark photons can lead to a very bright flash of gamma-rays immediately after a binary neutron star merger. This presents a new promising avenue to explore dark sectors through multi-messenger astronomy in the gravitational wave era.
- Host: Lars Aalsma
