Pheno & Vino | JiJi Fan, Brown University | "Direct detection experiments in the Gaia era" | via Zoom

Tue, Mar 24, 2020, 4:00 pm

The advent of the Gaia era has led to potentially revolutionary understanding of dark matter dynamics in our galaxy, which has important consequences for direct detection experiments. In this talk, I will discuss the effects of various dark matter substructures inferred from the Gaia data on possible direct detection signals at next-generation experiments. In particular, I will focus on the implications of the so-called Gaia sausage for the dark matter-nuclear interactions, as well as the unique modulation signatures of several possible streams associated with dark matter-electron interactions.
