The hunt for Dark Matter: From Stars to detectors
Chris Kouvaris, CP3-origins Odense
Asymmetric dark matter with sufficiently strong self-interactions might potentially lead to the formation of dark matter compact objects. I will entertain this possibility providing possible ways of distinguishing these “dark stars” from ordinary black holes and other compact objects like neutron stars. I will also discuss some new techniques in dark matter direct detection that could facilitate searches in the sub-GeV mass region.
