Updates from the XENON Dark Matter and Neutrino program

Presented by Prof. Christopher TUNNELL on 1 Jul 2019 from 17:40 to 18:10
Type: oral presentation
Track: Neutrinos and Non-Accelerator Probes of New Physics


The XENON collaboration has an experimental program consisting of a series of liquid-xenon time-projection chambers to directly detect our galactic dark matter halo. The most recent detector XENON1T is currently the most sensitive direct detection experiment to date at the electroweak scale, while still being sensitive to new physics processes such as the double-electron capture process that we recently discovered. On the near horizon is the XENONnT experiment, who's physics program is similar to that of the UK-participating LZ, which is currently being commissioned. Additionally, other physics programs such as neutrinoless double-beta decay are being explored. I'll explain what XENON1T found and what it didn't find, while explaining where we expect to be in the coming few years.
