    New cryogenic detectors probe recent evidence for dark matter particle 29 Feb 2000 Four of the six germanium detectors used in the CDMS search for WIMPs. They are stacked in the rear tower and suspended in a cryogenic container, or cryostat. IN THIS STORY: Opposite results also reported Related stories, sites, photos A new generation of particle detector that operates at temperatures near absolute zero has proven extremely accurate in identifying the particles that crash through it, an international team of scientists reported last week. The novel detector, buried 35 feet underground on the Stanford University campus, has dedicated itself for more than a year to the search for exotic and elusive particles that, according to some theories, make up more than 90 percent of the mass of the universe. Though the device has yet to find evidence of such particles - known collectively as WIMPs, or weakly interacting massive particles - it has proved to have a keen ability to discriminate between the different kinds of particles that zip through it. Developed over the past 11 years by scientists at 10 institutions and coordinated by the Center for Particle Astrophysics at the University of California, Berkeley, it uses germanium or silicon semiconductors cooled to several hundredths of a degree above absolute zero, the coldest possible temperature. The scientific team goes by the name Cryogenic Dark Matter Search, or CDMS.

    Missing matter glimpsed?
    Astronomers see signs of cold dark matter clumped around galaxies.
    24 May 2002 TOM CLARKE Two astronomers have snatched a tantalizing glimpse of what could be cold dark matter clumped around distant galaxies. Cold dark matter is one of the leading candidates to explain the mystery of the Universe's missing matter. Gravitational lenses suggest dark matter is dotted round galaxies. "This is not proof that it's there, but it is in agreement with what we'd expect to see if it was," says one of the pair, Christopher Kochanek of the Harvard-Smithsonian Centre for Astrophysics in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The size of the Universe and the speed at which it is expanding means that it contains about 80% more matter than all the visible stars, planets and dust clouds account for. Because we can't see this matter, physicists have dubbed it, whatever it happens to be, dark matter. One strong theory predicts that it comprises invisible, weakly interacting massive particles, or WIMPs, collectively called cold dark matter. To look for this cold dark matter, which, if it exists, is not emitting or reflecting any light, Kochanek and colleague Neal Dalal of the University of California, San Diego, are using radio telescopes and a phenomenon called gravitational lensing.

    This book contains the proceedings of the International Symposium on Neutrino Astrophysics to be held at Takayama/Kamioka, Japan on October 19-22,1992. In 1987, neutrinos arriving from the supernova explosion, were detected for the first time in human history by the Kamiokande Group in Japan and by the Irvine, Michigan and Brookhaven (IMB) Group in the United States; having arrived from the Large Magelanic Cloud 170 thousand light years away from Earth. Observations of these supernova-produced neutrinos have since provided significant contributions to the fields of astrophysics and particle physics.

    "Laboratory Astrophysics" of Supersymmetry and Dark Matter
    Michael Peskin , September 22, 2003
    SLAC, Stanford University
    You have already learned from Sean Carroll that the energy in the universe is preposterously composed of three major ingredients: baryonic matter, dark matter, and dark energy. Dark matter is still unidentified, but there are good candidates for it from particle physics. In particular, it was proposed 20 years ago that extensions of the Standard Model with supersymmetry provide an explanation for the dark matter. In this lecture I will review that story and explain a recently understood twist, that the now- understood density of dark matter requires a supersymmetric model to have special properties, constraining the large parameter space. The discovery of supersymmetry at the next generation of accelerators would allow us to study dark matter in the laboratory and provide a microscopic prediction of the dark matter density. I will discuss what is needed from this next phase of "laboratory astrophysics". Additional resources for this talk: Slides . You may need Adobe Acrobat Reader for this resource.

    Computing the Universe: X-Ray Clusters in a Cold + Hot Dark Matter Universe Greg L. Bryan and Michael L. Norman Laboratory for Computational Astrophysics, National Center for Supercomputing Applications, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
    What are X-ray clusters?
    X-ray telescopes orbiting the Earth have discovered that clusters of galaxies are immersed in halos of million degree gas. This hot gas is a byproduct of the galaxy formation process and emits large amounts of energy in the form of X-rays. (33k JPEG) So luminous are these X-ray clusters they are visible to cosmological distances. Consequently, astronomers study X-ray clusters because they map out the large scale structure of the universe. Here, we study the formation of X-ray clusters by means of numerical simulations.
    How are they simulated?
    (116K MPEG) The calculation begins roughly one billion years after the big bang, when the universe was denser and more uniform than it is today. In this illustration, a closed two-dimensional universe is represented as the surface of an expanding sphere. The calculation is performed in a patch hundreds of millions of light years on a side, which is large enough to fairly represent the universe as a whole. The calculation follows the growth of initially small matter density fluctuations as the universe expands. (132K MPEG) To more clearly see the structure formation process, let's repeat the last sequence and view it in a frame which is comoving with the expanding universe. Here one sees how small fluctuations grow and cluster into larger coherent structures. This behavior is caused by gravity, which has overcome the cosmic expansion and pulled slightly overdense regions into dense filaments, seen here in green. The intersection of filaments, seen in red, locate where rich clusters of galaxies form, as well as their hot X-ray halos.

    The particle and nuclear astrophysics program addresses questions of fundamental physics in astrophysical systems. Current research topics include solar neutrinos and neutrino oscillations, and dark matter detection. Princeton has a major role in the Borexino solar neutrino experiment at the Gran Sasso laboratory in Italy. The detector consists of 1300 tons of ultra-pure liquid scintillator, and will make the first direct-counting measurement of the Sun's low-energy 7Be neutrinos. This will provide a very sensitive probe of neutrino oscillations, as well as an important test of our understanding of the complex physics of the brightest available neutrino source. Princeton is involved in current and future dark matter detection experiments. The evidence is now overwhelming that some 30% of the universe is in the form of cold dark matter, but the nature of this matter remains a mystery. The most attractive theory is that it is Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs) that froze-out of the early universe. Such particles are a generic prediction of supersymmetry, and, should they exist, dominate the Milky Way and are likely to be detectable on Earth. Princeton is involved in one of the leading dark matter experiments (CDMS), as is playing a major role in the development of a new liquid-xenon time projection chamber (XENON) that should be scalable to sufficient size to critically test the WIMP hypothesis. Particle astrophysics probes questions of fundamental importance, but still takes place in relatively small collaborations. Graduate students are involved in both hardware development and data analysis. Detector development stresses creative advances in detector sensitivity, using laboratory prototypes of manageable size.

    New views on the Universe The Rencontres du Vietnam began with a meeting in Hanoi on Particle Physics and Astrophysics in December 1993; a second one was held in Saigon in October 1995. The third Rencontres du Vietnam, devoted to Condensed Matter Physics was held in Hanoi in January 1999. The fourth Rencontres du Vietnam, entitled Physics at Extreme Energies, was also held in Hanoi in July 2000. The aim of the Rencontres has been to extend the successful international collaboration of Europe, Russia, Japan and the United States in these rapidly evolving fields to the emerging Pacific rim countries. The number of countries represented and the presence of leading scientists has emphasised the importance which the international community places on scientific links with Vietnam. As a natural continuation of this series, two parallel conferences, one on particle physics and the other on astrophysics, will be organised in 2004.

    We consider the possibility that ultra-high energy cosmic rays originate from the annihilation of relic superheavy dark matter. We find that a cross section of Av cm (M X GeV) is required to account for the observed rate of super-GZK events if the superheavy dark matter follows a Navarro-Frenk-White density profile. This would require extremely large-l contributions to the annihilation cross section. We also calculate the possible signature from annihilation in sub-galactic clumps of dark matter and find that the signal from sub-clumps dominates and may explain the observed flux with a much smaller cross section than if the superheavy dark matter is smoothly distributed. Finally, we discuss the expected anisotropy in the arrival directions of the cosmic rays, which is a characteristic signature of this scenario.
