Invited talk DM Direct Detection


Prof. Graciela Gelmini (UCLA)


After briefly reviewing the WIMP status as dark matter (DM) candidate, I will mention how the impact of the neutrino floor on the direct detection (DD) reach depends on the type of WIMP-nucleus interaction and mass, and then how a DD signal would translate into properties of the DM local velocity distribution, allowing to compare different DD data sets through these predictions (in a “halo-independent” analysis complementary to the usual halo-dependent method).
