    Experimental Approach May Reveal Dark Matter’s Physical Traits

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    A multi-institutional collaboration of engineers has developed an experimental approach for the detection of dark matter. While scientists are sure that dark matter — which accounts for 85% of the matter in the universe — exists by its gravitational effects, they have yet to find any direct evidence of the substance.

    “It could be made up of black holes, or it could be made up of something trillions of times smaller than an electron, known as ultralight dark matter,” said Swati Singh, an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of Delaware. Singh is among a small group within the dark matter community that wondered if scientists were looking for the right kind of dark matter….
