Invited talk in the parallel session Interacting Dark Matter Interacting Dark Matter

Speaker

Christopher McCabe (King's College London)

Description

In this talk, I’ll discuss ideas for new approaches in the hunt for light dark matter was gas-based detectors. I’ll show that the sensitivity that may be achievable through the process of electron ionisation of gas targets in a Spherical Proportional Counter in very promising, going beyond current exclusion limits. I'll also pay particular attention to the potential benefits of molecular gas targets.
