Tackling energy deficits for dark matter detection
Speaker: Harikrishnan Ramani (Stanford University)
Models such as inelastic dark matter, dark matter with large interactions with the standard model, and dark matter with masses below 1 MeV are notoriously difficult to detect in direct detection experiments owing to their inability to impart a large enough recoil energy in traditional dark matter experiments. In this talk, I explore different strategies to attack this problem. These include nuclear isomer batteries, electric fields to accelerate milli-charge dark matter and atoms and molecules with small energy gaps.
