  • Location: 3481 Randall

  • Description:

    I will describe a new way to search for dark matter using an intense proton beam - target - detector setup, such as those used to study neutrino oscillations. This gives new motivation to experiments like MiniBooNE, MINOS, MicroBooNE, NOvA, LBNE and a future Project X facility. A specific proposal to perform the first search of this kind at the MiniBooNE experiment at Fermilab will be presented.
