KICP Colloquia: Hugh Lippincott (Fermilab) “Doping – Not just for Cyclists”

3:30–4:30 pm ERC 161

After a series of null results from the LHC and large direct detection experiments, dark matter remains frustratingly mysterious, and much of the canonical heavy WIMP parameter space is now ruled out. In this talk, I will give an update on the status of the LZ experiment, and discuss an idea to expand the parameter space that can be probed by large liquid xenon TPCs like LZ by adding hydrogen to the target, opening up sensitivity to WIMP masses well below 1 GeV.

Reception following colloquium in the Hubble Lounge (ERC 501).
