Colloquium Prof. Guy Moore (TU Darmstadt)

17 - 11 - 2017 om 11:15 tot 17 - 11 - 2017 om 12:15


Friday 17 November, 11.00h, at Nikhef/CWI in Z011.

Speaker: Prof. Guy Moore (TU Darmstadt)

Title: “Axion as Dark Matter

Abstract:
The hypothetical QCD axion would explain why the strong interactions obey Time-reversal symmetry, and it could also make up the Dark Matter of the Universe. I argue that, within reasonable assumptions, it should be possible to predict the axion’s mass if it makes up all of dark matter. I discuss the somewhat intricate physics involved in making this prediction. I predict an axion mass of 26 +- 3 micro-electron volts.
