Liquid noble gas for direct dark matter detection

abstract :Liquid noble gas detector becomes more and more popular in the particle physics community due to its long term stability , hight light yield and fast response times. The powerful pulse shape discrimination (PSD) of the noble gas provides great tool to distinguished unwanted background events (electronic recoil) from desired signals (nuclear recoil). In addition, electron signal produced at interaction site can be extracted when applying the electric field. This gives the opportunity to construct the Time Projection Chamber(TPC) using liquid noble gas, i.e. dual phase detector. In this talk, I will review the basic principle of operating the liquid noble gas detector as well as the current status of dark matter direct detection

Hawking radiation and the thermal interpretation of instantons

I will first discuss that Hawking radiation is indeed a kind of instantons. Such an instanton can be related to the path integral of particles, which was developed by Hartle and Hawking. In order to justify Hawking radiation, a choice of propagators is very important. From this analysis, we conclude that the thermal interpretation of Brown and Weinberg, that was originally proposed in de Sitter space, can be further justified. This is an interesting interplay between the particle tunneling picture and the instanton picture.

Relativistic Mirrors in LaserPlasma Interaction

Relativistic flying mirrors (RFM) are thin dense electron or electronion shells travelling through plasma with velocities close to the speed of light in vacuum [1]. A counterpropagating laser pulse can be reflected from such mirror, resulting in its energy and frequency change. Due to the double Doppler effect, the reflected wave is compressed, amplified and its frequency is upshifted by the factor proportional to the Lorentz factor squared. RFM can be realized using strongly nonlinear Langmuir waves generated by short intense laser pulses in underdense plasmas. Adjusting the properties of the target and the counterpropagating laser beam allows one to control the output parameters of the reflected light. Various schemes described in theoretical as well as experimental studies have proven the feasibility of this concept [2].
Regarding the possible applications, the concept of RFM is very promising for generation of compact and tunable sources of coherent electromagnetic radiation from Xray to gammaray range of photon energies. Such sources are of great demand for applications in diverse fields [3, 4, 5]. The relativistic mirrors formed in inhomogeneous plasmas might be also exploited to study the Unruh effect and the information loss paradox associated with black hole Hawking evaporation at the terrestrial laboratory conditions [6].

Testing Dark Matter Models with Gravitational Lensing

In this talk, I will discuss how the predicted properties of
darkmatter (DM) halos can be examined and tested using various
effects of gravitational lensing, such as weak shear lensing, weak
magnification lensing, strong lensing, and the moving lens effect. I
will present recent results from applications of gravitational lensing
to observations of galaxy clusters, the largest class of DM halos.
Possible topics to be covered include the density structure of DM in
quasiequilibrium halos, the asphericity of DM halos, the splashback
feature in outskirts of DM halos, and the recent discovery of the
universal fundamental plane (FP) relation in clusterscale DM halos.

Schwinger Effect in InflatonDriven Electric Field

In a four dimensional inflation theory, a persistent electric field can be established by making the inflaton coupled to the gauge field like a dilaton. We investigate the pair production of scalar particles in the inflatondriven electric field. In particular, we evaluate the induced current due to the pair production. The presence of the dilatonic coupling ensures the validity of the WKB approximation at the past and the future infinities, without tuning constant parameters. Thus, the semiclassical description is applicable in evaluating the induced current. Solving the field equations with the induced current, we evaluate the firstorder backreaction to the electric field. It turns out that the electric field decreases with the cosmic expansion. The result indicates that the noanisotropic hair theorem for inflation holds true regardless of whether the dilatonic coupling is present or not.

On our way to unmask the latetime acceleration of the Universe

We will present several proposals to describe the latetime acceleration of the universe within the framework of general relativity and beyond it. In some of these models, we will see how the cosmological perturbations behave and how well they fit the data. If time allows, we will as well discuss dark energy related singularities.

Search for dark matter in pp collisions with CMS

Searches in CMS for dark matter in final states with invisible particles recoiling against jets, top/bottom quarks, Ws, Zs, photons, Higgs bosons are presented. Various topologies are explored, covering several specific darkmatter production modes. The combination in a simplifiedmodel framework of various searches for direct dark matter production with the CMS detector is discussed, highlighting sensitivities of the analyses under various assumptions of DM production and complementarities with nonDM analyses.

Soft hair of dynamical black hole and Hawking radiation

Soft hair of black hole has been proposed recently to play an important role in the resolution of the black hole information
paradox. Recent work has emphasized that the soft modes cannot
affect the black hole Smatrix due to Weinberg soft theorems.
However as soft hair is generated by supertranslation of geometry
which involves an angular dependent shift of time, it must have
nontrivial quantum effects. We consider supertranslation of the
Vaidya black hole and construct a nonspherical symmetric dynamical
spacetime with soft hair. We show that this spacetime admits a trapping
horizon and is a dynamical black hole. We find that Hawking radiation
is emitted from the trapped horizon of the dynamical black hole.
The Hawking radiation has a spectrum which depends on the
soft hair of the black hole and this is consistent with the factorization
property of the black hole Smatrix.

Detectability of BellCHSH nonlocality by two spin detectors with optimal local filters

Abstract : The detection problem of quantum nonlocal correlation by two spin detectors is investigated. First we review the detection model of quantum entanglement of the Minokowski vacuum. It is shown that the entanglement between two spacelike points for some initial conditions of detectors is observed. Next we consider the detection of Bell nonlocaliy which is known as an important quantum correlation. Unlike the detection of entanglement, we need a local filtering operation to observe the Bell nonlocality. The local filtering operation is a probabilistic process performed by local observers and hence the detection of Bell nonlocality is probabilistic. Through the analysis of the Bell nonlocality detection, we find the relation between the detection probability and the detectable region of Bell nonlocality.

SuperCDMS SNOLAB and Future LowMass Dark Matter Searches

abstract: In recent years, development in dark matter (DM) phenomenology below weak/WIMP scale has been booming. I will begin by discussing the rich phenomenology and rising interest in lowmass DM candidates, e.g. dark photon. I will then introduce SuperCDMS SNOLAB, one of the leading next generation experiment for DM direct detection. It will search for DM mass in 0.510 GeV range with a projected sensitivity down to 10^43 cm^2 DMnucleon scattering cross section. It utilizes cryogenic Ge/Si crystal with superconducting Transition Edge Sensor (TES) for phononmediated recoil detection, and it will begin data taking in 2020. The second half of the talk will be focused on the ongoing R&D and proposed concepts beyond SuperCDMS SNOLAB. I will introduce Kinetic Inductance Detector (KID) as a promising alternative to TES for future larger scale, high resolution, MeVscale DM searches. Finally, I will briefly discuss recent proposals for new cryogenic target materials and conclude the talk with known/potential limitations and other future prospects toward the complete search for lowmass DM.
