On the Existence of Low-Mass Dark Matter and its Direct Detection

Dark matter accounts for a majority of the matter in the Universe, but its properties are largely unknown. We propose a new dark matter particle and a means, via optomechanical experiments, to test for its existence.

Equilibrium spin pulsars unite neutron star populations

Using recent neutron star measurements, we find evidence for a fundamental link between pulsars with the slowest spin periods and strong magnetic fields around high-mass companion stars and pulsars with the fastest spin periods and weak fields around low-mass companion stars. The strong magnetic fields suggest the field penetrates into the star's superconducting core. [Wynn Ho (Gravity), Helen Klus (Astro), Malcolm Coe (Astro), and Nils Andersson (Gravity); 5 Dec 2013]
