Terrestrial and Astrophysical Probes of Dark Matter

Speaker:Prof. Tomer Volansky
Affiliation:Tel Aviv University
Organizer:Yoav Sagi
Time:14:30 - 15:30
Location:Lidow Rosen Auditorium (323)

The existence of dark matter has been well established with overwhelming evidence, but its particle identity remains unknown. Significant progress has been made in recent years in expanding the dark matter search to new uncharted territories. In this talk I will focus on the possibilities to probe dark matter terrestrially as well as indirectly, focusing, in part, on light and ultralight dark matter, which have been argued to be particularly motivated. I will briefly review the current status of the field and discuss new avenues in the search for dark matter.
