Probing dark matter with cosmic voids
Elena Pinetti, Fermilab & KICP,

In this talk, I will explain why cosmic voids are an interesting new target for dark matter searches. I will show that the expected signal-to-noise ratio resulting from decaying dark matter is significantly more favourable in cosmic voids as compared to dark matter halos, as a result of the reduced astrophysical background. This opens an exciting new avenue for dark matter searches.

The talk is in 469 Lauritsen.
