The WIMP is Dead, Long Live the WIMP

Nov. 13, 2018

Laboratory searches for dark matter now exclude many of the "weakly interacting massive particle" models that were favored by particle physicists for decades. We discuss what this means for the theoretical and experimental frontier of particle physics and address what we really mean when we say "WIMP."
