Diego Blas: Detecting light dark matter with atomic clocks and magnetometers

Friday, 14 December 2018 from to (Europe/London)
at Schuster ( 54-6-6.40 - Niels Bohr Common Room )
Description
In this talk I’ll describe how to use atomic clocks and co-magnetometers for direct detection of light dark matter candidates. These candidates are well motivated theoretically but are hard to detect in more traditional searchers due to their small momentum. I’ll also comment on the prospects to detect astrophysical neutrino backgrounds with similar methods.
