General Physics Colloquium, Professor Tomer Volansky, Tel Aviv University

Title:  New Avenues in the Hunt for Dark Matter

Host:  Csaba Csaki

Abstract:  The existence of dark matter has been well established with overwhelming evidence, but its particle identity remains unknown.  Significant progress has been made in recent years in expanding the dark matter search to new uncharted territories.  In this talk I will focus on the possibilities to probe light and ultralight dark matter, which have been argued to be particularly motivated.  I will briefly review the current status of the field and discuss new avenues in the search for dark matter.
