Researchers Give New Way To Explore The Nature Of Dark Matter

Dark matter is only recognized by its impact on huge astronomical bodies, but has yet to be observed directly or even recognized. A hypothesis about what dark matter may be recommends that it might be a particle dubbed as an axion and that these might be noticeable with laser-supported tests that are already present. These laser tests are gravitational-wave labs.

The search is on for dark matter. There are a number of theories as to what kind of thing it may turn out to be, but a number of physicists think that dark matter is a WIMP (weakly interacting massive particle). What this indicates is that it does not communicate effortlessly with normal matter. We know this to be factual since it has not been directly seen yet. But it should also have at least some mass as its attendance can be meddled by its gravitational force.

There have been various efforts to spot WIMP dark matter, comprising in Switzerland with the Large Hadron Collider, but WIMPs have not been detected yet. An optional candidate particle getting attention is the axion.

“We presume that the axion barely interacts with our familiar types of matter and is very light. Hence, it is believed as a fine dark matter candidate,” claimed Yuta Michimura at the University of Tokyo from the Department of Physics. “We do not know the axions’ mass, but we normally think it has a mass not more than that of electrons. Our universe is crowded with dark matter and it is expected that there are 500 grams of dark matter inside the Earth.”

On a related note, knowing what will be the universe’s final destiny and how it came to be what it is today is one of the biggest hurdles in science. The more profound riddle lies in what we can’t see, at least not directly: dark energy and dark matter.
