Title: Beyond dark matter detection with neutrino telescopes
Date (JST): Wed, May 30, 2012, 12:00 - 13:00
Place: Seminar Room A
Abstract: Cosmological and astrophysical observations provide increasing evidence of the existence of dark matter in our Universe. Dark matter particles with a mass above a few GeV can be captured by the Sun, accumulate in the core, annihilate, and produce high energy neutrinos either directly or by subsequent decays of Standard Model particles. We investigate the prospects for indirect dark matter detection in the IceCube/DeepCore neutrino telescope and its capabilities to determine some of its properties.
