Speaker: Elisabetta Barberio (U of Melbourne)
Title: A south Hemisphere prospective on Dark Matter
Date (JST): Fri, Mar 20, 2015, 13:30 - 14:30
Place: Seminar Room A
Abstract: The quest to identify dark matter requires new and innovative approaches, combining techniques and data from a range of instruments. In the Southern Hemisphere, we have a crucial advantage in the search for dark matter via direct detection, which will allow us to independently test the most persistent and enigmatic signal in the worldwide dark matter detection effort. I will discuss a new underground laboratory, which will host a new dark matter direct detection experiment, which will be taking place in Australia in the next five years. This experiment will be able to measure or exclude the Dama modulation signal.
