Searching for Light Dark Matter with DAMIC at SNOLAB and DAMIC-M: Investigations into Radioactive Backgrounds and Silicon Skipper Charge-Coupled Devices

Ariel Yechezkel Matalon
The dark matter community has reached an inflection point. Strong limits have been placed on O(100 GeV) WIMPs, and attempts to produce dark matter at accelerators have not yet been successful. As such, there has been a shift towards exploring new parameter space, specifically that of light dark matter, and looking for hidden photons or dark matter-electron interactions. The DAMIC (Dark Matter in CCDs) program employs the bulk silicon of scientific CCDs to search for...
