CERN will search for particles associated with dark matter


The European Nuclear Research Organization (CERN) stated that it plans to begin an experiment on finding dark photons and neutralino associated with dark matter with the help of a new detector.

Scientists argue that ordinary matter, from which all gases, stars, planets and other objects are, is only 5% of the universe. According to their calculations, about 27% account for dark matter, and the rest is dark energy. The problem is that we cannot see this mysterious substance, but its presence confirms numerous gravitational effects and indirect signs of behavior of astrophysical objects.

The European Physical Laboratory will use a large adronle collider on the French-Swiss border for searches for lungs and weakly interacting particles associated with dark matter. According to scientists, they can imperceptibly pass through existing detectors along the current lines and overcome huge distances before turning into known and detectable particles, such as electrons and positrons.

To solve this problem, the CERN has developed a new installation, known as Faser, which has high sensitivity and can detect them. The new detector will be located outside the rings itself.

Physics expect to fix hypothetical dark photons and neutralino, hypothetical particles associated with dark matter. New experiments should begin between 2021 and 2023. Previously, the tank was also used to search for a higgs boson, a field quanta, which helped scientists better understand the emergence of the mass of objects.
