  1. 1. Test setup for LDMX HCal readout

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Partikelfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Joshua Greaves; [2020]
    Keywords : Dark matter; LDMX; dark photon; hadronic calorimeter; photomultiplier tube; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : It is evident from cosmological observations such as the Cosmic Microwave Background, and the motion of galaxies, that the universe consists of approximately 5 times more mass than visible matter can account for. The Light Dark Matter eXperiment (LDMX) will take a unique approach in its hunt for dark matter; it will look for missing momentum signals in electron collisions with a Tungsten target, and will be looking in the sub GeV energy range for evidence of dark matter interactions.

  2. 2. Signal and background discrimination for two-electron events in LDMX using a Boosted Decision Tree

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Partikelfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Jessamy Mol; [2019]
    Keywords : Light Dark Matter Experiment; Boosted Decision Tree; machine learning; Dark Matter; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : The Light Dark Matter Experiment (LDMX) is a fixed target experiment that will search for dark matter, but is still in the development phase. An important aspect for the experiment is the discrimination of signal and background events. READ MORE

  3. 3. Event Generators and Light Dark Matter

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Teoretisk partikelfysik

    Author : Michal Nowak; [2019]
    Keywords : Event Generators; Dark Matter; Particle Kinematics; Particle Scattering; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : Recently, a number of experiments have been proposed with the aim of finding light dark matter. In particular, the proposed LDMX experiment is meant to utilize electron scattering off metal nuclei to excite dark matter emissions. Motivated by this, we construct an event generator for electrons scattering off metal nuclei. READ MORE
