HEAp (High Energy Astrophysics)

The HEAp group has searched for evidence of cold dark matter (WIMPs) with the MACRO detector that would appear as a high energy neutrino signal pointing back to the center of the sun or the center of the earth. These neutrinos would result from WIMP annihilations in the center of the sun or the center of the earth. The HEAp group is also participating in the MINOS experiment that is searching for evidence of neutrino mass which could provide a component of the hot dark matter in the universe.
