Gamma-ray flashes from dark photons in neutron star mergers
Time: 2:00 pm
Place: For zoom link, sign up at: https://groups.google.com/a/g-groups.wisc.edu/d/forum/theoryseminars/join
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
