APEC Seminar (Astronomy - Particle Physics - Experimental Physics - Cosmology)

Speaker: David McKeen (TRIUMF)
Title: 938 MeV dark matter, neutron decay, and neutron stars
Date: Mon, May 28, 2018, 13:30 - 14:30
Place: Seminar Room A
Abstract: I will discuss the possibility that neutrons decay in a nonstandard way, perhaps into the dark matter of the Universe. This has profound implications for neutron stars which rules out the simplest scenarios. I will describe ways to avoid this exclusion and how they might be tested.
