Kavli Affiliate: Noah Kurinsky | First 5 Authors: Yonit Hochberg, Yonatan Kahn, Noah Kurinsky, Benjamin V. Lehmann, To Chin Yu | Summary: We show that the rate for dark matter-electron scattering in an arbitrary material is determined by an experimentally measurable quantity, the complex dielectric function, for any dark matter interaction that couples to electron […]
