Typically, atomic physics deals with physics at the eV scale, while neutrino physics from nuclear reaction and direct dark matter detection deal with physics above 1 MeV. I will tell the story of how these fields meet at the keV scale through the quest of direct light dark matter detection. I will also discuss how multiâton xenon detectors, originally designed for dark matter searches, can potentially constrain solar pp neutrino flux and exotic neutrino properties as byproducts with high accuracy as well.
