Speaker

Malcolm Fairbairn (King's College London)

Description

I will talk about the problem of neutrinos as a difficult background for dark matter direct detection experiments. I will present new work describing ongoing efforts to mitigate against this background. I will also talk about embracing the problem and using dark matter detectors to do neutrino physics, in particular I will describe tests of solar physics and the standard model which can be performed in this way and how such experiments can constrain new BSM physics in the neutrino sector.
