For more than a decade, Texas A&M University high energy physicist Rupak Mahapatra has been making the devices that make detection of the particles believed to be behind dark matter and therefore nearly a quarter of the universe possible. Mahapatra is working closely with high energy physicist Mirabolfathi to develop next generation detectors that could make dramatic improvements in such detection technologies.
