Charla de Miguel Ángel Sánchez Conde sobre detección indirecta de Materia Oscura

Indirect Dark Matter

Dr. Miguel Ángel Sánchez Conde is a researcher at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid leading a group with a focus on gamma-ray dark matter searches, astroparticle physics and cosmological simulations.

Abstract: The nature of the dark matter (DM) in the Universe is one of the greatest mysteries of our time, and its quest of utmost relevance for the whole scientific community. Among the efforts currently ongoing, the search for annihilation or decay products of DM particle candidates like the WIMP already provided abundant information and allowed to set competitive constraints on the DM particle properties. In this review talk, I will summarize the current status of this ‘indirect’ search of DM, paying particular attention to results obtained with gamma-ray telescopes from the direction of the best astrophysical targets. I will finally discuss on future DM sensitivity prospects and new DM search opportunities.»

Star forming emission line galaxies at z~1 as cosmological tracers

El 1 de Julio a las 12.10 h. tendrá lugar el seminario organizado por el Centro de Astropartículas y Física de Altas Energías “Star forming emission line galaxies at z~1 as cosmological tracers”, impartido por Violeta Gonzalez Perez, investigadora del programa «Atracción de Talento» en el CIAFF de la Universidad Autónoma de Madrid.
El seminario se realizará a través del siguiente enlace zoom. No te lo pierdas!

Abstract:
Current and future cosmological surveys (SDSS-IV/eBOSS, DESI, Euclid) are targeting star forming galaxies emission line galaxies at z~1. These galaxies are dominated by [OII] emitters when the selection is done using optical instruments. This talk will start with an overview of the different techniques to study the formation and evolution of galaxies computationally to then focus on the modelling of star forming emission line galaxies (ELGs). Using a state-of-the-art model of galaxy formation and evolution we explore the global properties of [OII] emitters, including their large scale environment. Model galaxies are selected with cuts in different properties such that the samples can be directly compared with a range of both narrow and wide observational surveys: DEEP2, VVDS, eBOSS and DESI. The selected [OII] emitters are hosted by haloes with halo masses above 10^10.3 Msun/h, with ~90% of them being central star-forming galaxies. The predicted mean halo occupation distributions of [OII] emitters has a shape typical of that inferred for star-forming galaxies, with the contribution from central galaxies being far from the canonical step function. The mean halo occupation distribution for central [OII] emitters can be described as the sum of an asymmetric Gaussian for disks and a step function for spheroids, which plateaus below unity. The large scale environment of model galaxies is obtained for fixed number density samples, using a velocity-shear-tensor and a tidal-tensor algorithms. About half of the fixed number density ELGs live in filaments, following the distribution of SFR selected galaxies with the same number density, and a third in cosmic sheets. SFR cut selected ELGs and general galaxies with equal number density, have the same large scale bias but their clustering below separations of 1Mpc/h are different. Although as a first approximation the samples that will be targeted by DESI, 4MOST, MSE, etc. are simply star forming galaxies, the model ELGs do trace a slightly different large scale environment.

Conferencia, viernes 28 de mayo: Transformando el Consejo de Seguridad Nuclear para mejorar la seguridad nuclear y la protección radiológica

Francisco Castejón, consejero del CSN, impartirá una conferencia en el Aula Magna del Paraninfo de Zaragoza el próximo viernes 28 de mayo, a las 12h, con el título:

Transformando el Consejo de Seguridad Nuclear para mejorar la seguridad nuclear y la protección radiológica.

El papel del Consejo de Seguridad Nuclear (CSN) en el contexto de la situación actual será el tema central de la conferencia. La renovación en la que se encuentra inmerso dicho organismo pretende aportar mas transparencia con el fin de generar más confianza y seguridad en la sociedad.  En este sentido la ciencia ciudadana podría jugar un papel importante.

Dia: 28 de Mayo 2021, Hora: 12:00

Lugar: Aula Magna del Paraninfo de la Universidad de Zaragoza. Edificio Paraninfo, Plaza de Paraiso 4, Zaragoza

La conferencia está organizada por el CAPA y la Facultad de Ciencias de la Universidad de Zaragoza.

New ANAIS-112 results on annual modulation

ANAIS-112 experiment is taking data at Canfranc Underground Laboratory since August 2017 in order to test DAMA/LIBRA signal. Updated results for three years and 112.5 kg, together with complementary analysis and consistency checks have been posted in arXiv this week:

https://arxiv.org/abs/2103.01175

ANAIS-112 results confirm previous sensitivity estimates and tension with DAMA/LIBRA results (for 2.7 / 2.5 sigma sensitivities in the two energy regions considered).

More information on ANAIS-112 experiment can be found at ANAIS webpage: https://gifna.unizar.es/anais/

17th MultiDark Consolider Workshop

Del 25 al 27 de enero de 2021 tendrá lugar en formato online el XVII Multidark Consolider Workshop.

Más información en:  https://workshops.ift.uam-csic.es/multidark17

Up to now science has failed to identify what makes up to 85% of the matter of the Universe. Elucidating the nature of dark matter constitutes a key challenge in modern physics. MultiDark is a Consolider Network supported by the Spanish Research Agency, in which theoretical and experimental groups with particle physicists, astrophysicists and cosmologists from 18 Spanish universities and research institutes, experts in astroparticle physics, join efforts to take up this task from a multidisciplinary perspective.

Direct Dark Matter Detection Report Community Feedback Meeting

From APPEC News:

An APPEC SAC sub-committee for Direct Dark Matter Detection was established by the General Assembly in May 2019. This committee, chaired by Professor Leszek Roszkowski, has delivered its draft report for community feedback. The draft report gives a complete overview of the current status in the field of direct dark matter detection research as well as an outline of the prospects for experiments in the foreseeable future. It also addresses the issue of infrastructure requirements and the links to neighbouring research fields.
Feedback from the wider European (and beyond) Astroparticle Physics community is invited and will be discussed in an online meeting on Tuesday 2 February 2021. Information on the community feedback meeting and participant registration is provided in Indico at https://indico.cern.ch/event/982757/.
This site links the draft Direct Dark Matter Detection Committee Report. This document is a draft report that is only made available confidentially for this meeting. It is subject to change, depending in part on the community feedback. Questions, comments or suggestions concerning the draft report can already be submitted by email to the chair of the committee Leszek Roszkowski prior to the meeting. Preferably, this should be done no later than Sunday 24 January 2021 for full consideration in preparing the meeting.
Taking the feedback from the community into account, the Direct Dark Matter Detection Committee Report will be finalised for endorsement by the APPEC General Assembly for public release around the beginning of April 2021.
