Speaker: Wenbo Ma (Shanghai Jiao Tong University)-Title: Search for solar neutrino and light dark matter with the PandaX-4T experiment

September 15, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

DATE: September 15, 2023

TIME: 12:00- 1:00 PM

LOCATION: 50A-5-5132-CR-Sessler 

SPEAKER: Wenbo Ma (Shanghai Jiao Tong University)

TITLE: Search for solar neutrino and light dark matter with the PandaX-4T experiment

ABSTRACT: The PandaX-4T experiment aims to search for potential dark matter interactions. With significant technical improvements, PandaX-4T achieves unprecedented sensitivity at the low-energy edge of LXe detectors, opening a new window for observing solar neutrinos. Using commissioning data, two hybrid analyses are carried out to search for dark matter interactions, yielding world-leading results for neutrino-nucleus coherent elastic scattering from solar B8 neutrino, as well as for dark matter interactions with nucleons and electrons. These results demonstrate PandaX-4T’s unique capability to search for low-energy interactions from solar and galactic sources.
