VIRTUAL INPA SEMINAR | Kev Abazajian (UC Irvine) 

October 16 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Speaker: Kev Abazajian (UC Irvine) 
Title: Arising and demising candidate dark matter signals on the sky, and the potential of future searches
New  technologies searching are observing the high-energy Universe with unprecedented detail. One of the primary goals of gamma-ray and X-ray astronomy has been the search for potential signals of dark matter that could be at the keV to GeV energy scales. The past 10 years have had two candidate signals in both energy regimes, which are both high energy but separated by a factor of 1 million: the ~3 GeV excess from the Milky Way Galactic Center, and the 3-55 keV line detected in several X-ray observations. I will discuss the saga of these signals and future prospects from the keV to TeV scales.
