We are pleased to announce a seminar by Prof. Carsten Rott
* Title : The Hunt for Dark Matter with Neutrinos
* Speaker : Carsten Rott(SKKU)
* Date : 3:00 pm, Sept 7 2016
* Place : CTPU Seminar Room, KAIST Munji Campus
* Abstract : One of the greatest challenges in modern science is unraveling the unknown nature of the dominant mass component in our Universe, the dark matter. Dark Matter could be detected indirectly through the observation of neutrinos produced in self-annihilations or decays. Searches for such neutrino signals have resulted in the most stringent constraints on the lifetime of heavy dark matter and some of the world bests limits on scattering with matter. In recent years these searches have made significant progress in sensitivity through new search methodologies, new detection channels, and through the availability of
rich datasets, foremost from the IceCube Neutrino Telescope. In this talk I will introduce the IceCube Neutrino Telescope and review dark matter searches. I will focus in particular on recent experimental progress and discuss the dark matter discovery potential for next-generation neutrino detectors.
We look forward to your participation in the seminar.
