Saturday Morning Physics | Searching for Dark Matter with Antimatter
Ilias Cholis, Assistant Professor (Oakland University Physics)
Antimatter cosmic ray measurements can advance our understanding of high-energy astrophysical phenomena in our own Galaxy. Over the last years, satellite experiments as the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer on board the International Space Station measure antimatter cosmic ray fluxes, including positrons (the antiparticles of electrons), antiprotons (the antiparticles of protons) and recently antimatter nuclei. These measurements provide a novel probe to search for new physics including annihilations of dark matter in the Milky Way, which I will present.
