Rare Event Searches with Gaseous Detectors

Tom Neep (Birmingham University)


The Birmingham particle physics group is involved in a number of international collaborations using gaseous detectors to search for rare and beyond the Standard Model physics. In this talk an overview of the recent activities of the group will be discussed. These activities include searching for dark matter with the NEWS-G collaboration, R&D towards a neutrinoless double beta decay experiment with the R2D2 collaboration, searching for the Migdal effect with the MIGDAL collaboration and a proposal led by Birmingham for a future dark matter experiment, DarkSPHERE. Each of these projects will be discussed, with an emphasis on the contributions of the Birmingham group.
