Condensed Dark Matter: An Axion Story
Time: 3:30 pm
Place: 5280 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: Chanda Prescod-Weinstein, MIT
Abstract: Recently there has been significant interest in the claim that axions, a popular dark matter candidate, form a Bose-Einstein condensate on a scale that has consequences for structure formation. I will describe my work examining this claim. It is clear that while Bose-Einstein condensates of axions form, they don't have the structure that was initially expected. Yet again, it matters whether particles are attracted or repulsed by one another.
