New Low-Energy Atomic Probes for Dark Matter
Helmholtz Institute Mainz
Low-mass bosonic dark matter particles produced after the Big Bang may form an oscillating classical field, which can be sought for in a variety of low-energy atomic experiments based on spectroscopic, interferometric and magnetometric techniques. Recent measurements in such systems have already allowed us to improve on existing constraints on certain dark matter interactions by up to 15 orders of magnitude.
