First results from the ANAIS experiment show no annual modulation, in conflict with longstanding results from the DAMA experiment.
The TOOLS 2020 conference attracted around 200 phenomenologists and experimental physicists to work on numerical tools for dark-matter models, and more.
Experiments such as MADMAX, IAXO and ALPS II are expanding the search for axions and other weakly interacting ‘slim’ particles that could hail from far above the TeV scale.
Experimentalists and theorists met from 16 to 19 November for the eighth workshop of the LHC's long-lived particles community.
The FIPs 2020 workshop was structured around portals that may link the Standard Model to a rich dark sector: axions, dark photons, dark scalars and heavy neutral leptons.
The ATLAS collaboration has released new monojet and dijet searches for WIMPs based on the full Run-2 data set.
Precision measurements of the production and annihilation of light antinuclei are sharpening the search for dark matter.
LHCb has probed hidden-valley scenarios which exhibit confinement in an analogous way to how the strong nuclear force confines quarks.
The excess could be due to a difficult-to-constrain tritium background, solar axions or solar neutrinos with a Majorana nature, says the collaboration.
The FUNK experiment has set an improved limit on the existence of hidden photons as candidates for dark matter with masses in the eV range.
