Antonia Hubbard, Northwestern University, "Searching for Dark Matter with the Micro-X Sounding Rocket"
Friday seminar: April 28 @ 12 PM, ERC 401
The Micro-X sounding rocket uses a Transition Edge Sensor (TES) array to make X-ray observations. The improved energy resolution of TESs compared to traditional space-based X-ray detectors brings new precision to both supernova remnant observations and the X-ray search for sterile neutrino dark matter.
