The quest for evidence of the nature of dark matter continues, despite decades of careful experiments in space as well as in massively shielded underground facilities. New research by John F. Cherry (Los Alamos National Laboratory), Mads T. Frandsen (CP3-Origins & Danish IAS) and Ian Shoemaker (Los Alamos National Laboratory, until recently CP3-Origins & Danish IAS) suggests that rather than looking for interactions of dark matter with nuclei, it would be fruitful to examine the interactions of much lighter dark matter annihilation products with nuclei.

The paper was published in Physical Review Letters, and an article about it has appeared in Fyens Stifftidende (in Danish).
