Dark matter in the TGD sense can be detected as absence of the ordinary matter!

I received a link to a highly interesting popular article with title "A Breakthrough Experiment Unlocking the Mystery of Unconventional Superconductivity" (see this). The article told about the work of Sarah Hirthe et al reported in the article "Magnetically mediated hole pairing in fermionic ladders of ultracold atoms" published in Nature (see this).

The TGD based view of unconventional superconductivity and biosuperconductivity (see for instance this, this, and this) is based on new view of quantum physics provided by new space-time concept and number theoretic vision predicting phases of ordinary matter behaving like dark matter and labelled by effective Planck constant heff=nh0, which can be very large as compared to the ordinary Planck constant h. This the case for the gravitational Planck constant introduced originally by Nottale. This implies quantum coherence in long scales essential for superconductivity.

This view suggests that hole pairs are formed when the electron pairs are transferred to the magnetic flux tubes and become dark and therefore have a non-standard value of effective Planck constant. This creates hole pairs at the level of the ordinary matter and the motion of the dark electron pair corresponds to that for the hole pair. The electron pair goes to a pair of magnetic flux tubes and transversal fluctuations in the shape of flux tubes are essential in the transition to superconductivity. This picture is consistent with the reported findings.

The really important message from the TGD point of view is that dark matter in TGD sense can be detected as the absence of ordinary matter! Hole pair is a shadow Cooper pair of dark electrons.

See the article TGD and Condensed Matter Physics or the chapter with the same title.
