Paper summaries on Twitter
For most of my papers I prepare an accessible summary, e.g. with animations to explain the physics, to be shared on my Twitter profile. Here is a list of previous summaries:
- Direct searches for general dark matter-electron interactions with graphene detectors
- Dark matter - electron interactions in materials beyond the dark photon model
- The ups and downs of inelastic dark matter: Electron recoils from terrestrial upscattering
(With illustrations and animations by co-author Saniya Heeba.)
- Crystal responses to general dark matter-electron interactions
- Solar reflection of light dark matter with heavy mediators
- Measuring the local Dark Matter density in the laboratory
(Summary by co-author Bradley Kavanagh.)
- Rejecting the Majorana nature of dark matter with electron scattering experiments
- Projected sensitivity to sub-GeV dark matter of next-generation semiconductor detectors
- Atomic responses to general dark matter-electron interactions
- Direct Detection of Strongly Interacting Sub-GeV Dark Matter via Electron Recoils
- How blind are underground and surface detectors to strongly interacting Dark Matter?
- The Sun as a sub-GeV Dark Matter Accelerator
Popular scientific articles
In 2017, I wrote a little article about the direct detection of dark matter for the local student newspaper Hjerneblod at SDU.
Features in the media
After the publication of our paper on general dark matter-electron interactions and its implications for condensed matter physic, Mia Halleröd Palmgren, communication officer at Chalmers, wrote a nice summary. It was also featured e.g. on phys.org, mirage, Tech Explorist.
Leah Crane from New Scientist wrote an article with the provocative title
New Scientist published another nice article
about one of our papers exploring dark matter in the Sun. It even features a little video.
