A novel proposal for cold dark matter, with a surpringly small mass of only 100 eV and interacting remarkably strongly with normal matter, has been published in Nature Scientific Reports   (authors James Bateman,  Ian McHardy, Alex Merle, Tim Morris and Hendrik Ulbricht). The paper also represents a milestone for the history of the department: for the first time there has been a publication involving authors from all three groups in Physics and Astronomy.
