Where: WH11 NE (Sunrise)
I will cover some of the basics of calculating expected dark matter rates, the main technologies currently in use and why it is difficult to do. I will also talk a little bit about the sociology of the field, which is particularly interesting now given the several claims, hints, excesses and null results that have been reported in the last few years.
