Poster 22: Luis Rufino – Investigating supersymmetric dark matter with MADHAT

<< Return to the Main Page

Faculty mentor: Pearl Sandick

  In this research project I explain what dark matter is and how the Minimal supersymmetric standard model has the possibility of explaining this phenomenon. I go over the theory along with how to detect these supersymmetric dark matter particles.
  Using a program called MADHAT allows me to place cross-section limits on supersymmetric dark matter models, and compare the cross-section with the Fermi-LAT satellite. Furthermore, determining if the dark matter models are excluded.
