Welcome to the Dark Matter UK website
Dark matter is a pillar of modern cosmology and provides strong evidence for physics beyond the Standard Model. Its impact on cosmology is modelled in N-body simulations, its distribution is being mapped with weak lensing studies, its production is being searched for at the LHC and its detection is sought for directly in deep underground detectors or indirectly through observation of its annihilation products.
The Dark Matter UK website provides a portal for all of those interested in dark matter research in the UK. We hold bi-annual meetings for researchers active in the field.
