Searching for Dark Matter – SuperCDMS (Cryogenic Dark Matter Search)
Prof. Matt Pyle & Prof. Holger Müller, UC Berkeley
What is dark matter? For decades, firm astronomical evidence from observations of stars and galaxies has indicated that most of the matter in the universe cannot be seen directly in telescopes. Instead, this matter must be observed indirectly through its gravitational pull on the objects that we can see. This is how the term “dark matter” was coined…But how do we search for something we can’t see? Explore these questions with a short talk and tour inside the labs of the SuperCDMS (Cryogenic Dark Matter Search) group and the Müller group laser interferometry lab at the University of California, Berkeley.
