Poster P12: The dark matter neutrino portal and implications for stellar collapse


Amol Patwardhan, UC Berkeley


We discuss the implications in a core-collapse supernova environment of a light dark matter particle that sees the standard model exclusively through its interaction with neutrinos. We consider the case of a light dark matter candidate which couples to neutrinos through a heavy mediator, and examine parameter regimes of interest from the point of view of supernova cooling, neutrino decoupling, and proto-neutron star heat transport.
