Hunting light dark matter with gamma rays

Illustration of the photon-axionlike particle conversion: Light produced in the jet of the galaxy converts into ALPs (dashed lines) and vice-versa when interacting with the magnetic field (wiggled line).

Physicists around the globe are working relentlessly to pin down the nature of dark matter. This enigmatic entity hides itself from our view as it does neither emit nor absorb any radiation. It only reveals itself through its gravitational interaction. With a new analysis of data from NASA’s [...] (Read post)

ATLAS Thesis Award goes to the Dark Side

Ruth Pöttgen is a postdoctoral researcher in the ATLAS group at Stockholm University. In 2015, she obtained her Ph.D. at the Johannes Gutenberg - University in Mainz, Germany, for her thesis on a “Search for Dark Matter in Events with a highly energetic jet and missing transverse momentum at a centre-of-mass energy of 8 TeV with the ATLAS Detector”. At the ATLAS collaboration meeting in February, Ruth was awarded one out of 4 ATLAS Thesis Awards for outstanding contributions to the ATLAS-Experiment in the context of a Ph.D. thesis; more than 100 theses were eligible.
