2nd Cosmic-ray Antideuteron Workshop

News del 21/02/2019

The 2nd Cosmic-ray Antideuteron Workshop will be held at the University of California, USA, 27-29 March 2019.

The precise measurement of cosmic-ray antinuclei serves as important means for identifying the nature of dark matter and beyond. Recent years showed that identifying the nature of dark matter with cosmic-ray positrons and higher energy antiprotons is challenging, and has lead to a significantly increased interest in cosmic-ray antideuteron and antihelium searches. They may also be generated in dark matter annihilations or decays, offering a potential breakthrough in unexplored phase space for dark matter.

As the "1st Cosmic-ray Antideuteron Workshop" in 2014, the second iteration also aims at bringing together theorists and experimentalists in the field to discuss the current status and perspectives, including potential primary sources of antinuclei, uncertainties of production and propagation in our Galaxy, and experimental cosmic-ray search updates.

Abstract submissione deadline: 23 February 2019.
