Latest Cryogenic Dark Matter Search Stories
Physicist Richard Schnee hopes to find traces of dark matter by studying particles with low masses and interaction rates, some of which have never been probed before
Albeit with much controversy, physicists are using ancient lead ingots from sunken ships in the study of dark matter in neutrinos. Archaeologists have gone on the offensive, expressing concerns over the destruction of underwater cultural heritage.
Just three months into its operation, the Large Underground Xenon experiment is already the most sensitive dark matter detector in the world.
An international collaboration of scientists has, for the first time, observed a concrete hint of a WIMP – weakly interacting massive particle – which physicists believe could be behind the mysterious phenomenon of dark matter.
The search for dark matter runs deep with physicists Blas Cabrera and Bernard Sadoulet, who have chased this mystery far underground and will be recognized for their work as joint recipients of the 2013 W.K.H. Panofsky Prize in Experimental Particle Physics.
KICP's Juan Collar leads a team that detected a seasonal signal variation compatible with dark matter theory.
A dark-matter experiment deep in the Soudan mine of Minnesota now has detected a seasonal signal variation similar to one an Italian experiment has been reporting for more than a decade.
Scientists leading an underground experiment to discover dark matter may be forced to relocate to a location even deeper below the Earth's surface.
Even the biggest Star Trek fan would probably have trouble understanding the technical details of the research done by Particle Astrophysics Professor Wolfgang Rau.
Physicists may have glimpsed a particle that is a leading candidate for mysterious dark matter but say conclusive evidence remains elusive.
- In Roman antiquity, the return of a person who had been banished, or taken prisoner by an enemy, to his old condition and former privileges.
- In international law, that right by virtue of which persons and things taken by an enemy in war are restored to their former status when coming again under the power of the nation to which they belonged.
