Prospects of Dark Matter Direct Search under Deep Sea Water in India
There is compelling evidence from cosmological and astrophysical observations that about one quarter of theenergy density of the universe can be attributed to cold dark matter (CDM), whose nature and properties are still unknown. Around the world large numbers of experiments are using different techniques of dark matter direct and indirect detections. According to their experimental requirements location of the experiment prefer to use either underground, under ice, or under sea water. In a country like India, digging underground cavern and long tunnel is not very convenient. Therefore, authors look from the other solutions of this problem preferring to use deep sea water. In this article, we discuss the pros and corns of use of deep sea water in the dark matter search.
