Atomic Physics Seminar
Update on the GNOME Experiment
Date: Wednesday, December 19th
Time: 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Place: 5310 Chamberlin
Speaker: Ibrahim Sulai (for the GNOME collaboration), Bucknell University
Abstract: The Global Network of Optical Magnetometers for Exotic physics (GNOME) comprises an array of atomic
magnetometers used for searching for beyond the standard model spin interactions. It presently
consists of 12 active magnetometer stations spread around the globe with gps-time stamped data being
continuously streamed to a central server for analysis. Of special interest is the search for dark matter in
the form of interactions with axion - like particles (ALPs) which may form ALP domain walls and ALP
stars. Such interactions will have the signature of temporally coincident transients occurring in multiple
sensors in the network. I will in this talk describe the experimental details of the network and review some
data analysis ideas.
