Titel:

Neutrino Portal Composite Dark Matter from a Light Hidden Sector

We present a class of models in which dark matter is composed of the composite states of a strongly coupled hidden sector. The hidden sector interacts with the standard model through the neutrino portal, allowing the relic abundance of dark matter to be set by annihilation into final states containing neutrinos. The coupling to the hidden sector also leads to the generation of neutrino masses through the inverse seesaw mechanism, with composite hidden sector states playing the role of the singlet neutrinos. We focus on the scenario in which the hidden sector is conformal in the ultraviolet, and the compositeness scale lies at or below the weak scale. We construct a holographic realization of this framework based on a five-dimensional warped geometry and study its phenomenology

Titel:

Watching atoms and electrons in action with short wavelength free electron lasers

Abstract:The present talk will illustrate the current status of short-wavelength free-electron laser (FEL) experiments, focusing on characteristic properties of different facilities. The advent of hard x-ray FELs, such as SACLA in Japan, opened a route to extract the structure of a single nanoparticle [1] and its change upon the intense laser irradiation, which transforms the nanoparticle into a nanoplasma [2]. The first high repetition rate soft x-ray FEL, SASE3 of the European XFEL, combined with a Reaction Microscope/COLTRIMS, made the long-standing dream to watch atoms in action - initiated by photoexcitation of a molecule - a tangible reality, using the so-called core-level photoelectron diffraction technique for fixed-in-space molecules [3]. Generation of two-color attosecond pulse pairs at the LCLS in the USA finally opened the door to watching charge migration in a molecule, before the nuclear dynamics sets in, with an attosecond transient absorption technique based on the detection of resonant Auger electrons [4]. Generating phase-coherent multi-color pulses at FERMI, on the other hand, provided a novel approach to coherently control the electronic wave-packets [5] and to read out the photoionization phase [6]. These works were carried out by a wide range of international collaborations. I acknowledge all the collaborators in the authors list of [1-6] for fruitful collaborations. [1] A. Niozu et al.
