Slide 35

Gravitational microlensing

Gravitational microlensing

Microlensing and magnitude of non-circular motions imply little DM at r<5kpc

Slide 36

Conclude

Conclude

Halo rather spherical

Counts of gravitational microlensing events imply that its mass is not in stellar or planetary objects

Slide 37

DM Searches

DM Searches

If m~GeV/c2, ~106 /cm2/s at ~300 km/s

Seasonal variation in flux

Slide 38

If particles weakly-interacting, one occasionally impacts atomic nucleus

If particles weakly-interacting, one occasionally impacts atomic nucleus

look for events deep underground (shielded from cosmic rays)

Conclusion

Conclusion

Understanding the Milky Way key for understanding the Universe

Provides probe of constitution of Universe

Much progress in the last decade

Still many unresolved questions

Will remain on the frontier of physics & astronomy for the foreseeable future
