Investigating Primordial Black Holes as Dark Matter with the Fermi satellite



Résumé
Dark Matter, which constitutes most of the matter content of the Universe, could be made of exotic Primordial Black Holes. This hypothesis has recently regained interest, also in the wake of gravitational waves detection. Primordial Black Holes with a mass around 10^16 grams (the mass of Mount Everest concentrated in a volume smaller than an atomic nucleus) emit by the phenomenon of Hawking evaporation and can therefore be tested with current data from the various satellites.
