Resumo: Gravitational-wave interferometers can be used to probe the existence of dark matter. Different types of dark matter, such as sub-solar primordial black holes, axions and dark photons, could leave different imprints on gravitational-wave detectors. While arising from physically different sources, such signals share common traits, and can be searched for with similar methods. In this talk, I will explain how persistent, quasi-monochromatic signals in ground-based detectors could arise from each of the aforementioned dark matter candidates. I also describe some of our search methods and summarize results from the most recent observing runs of Advanced LIGO, Virgo, and KAGRA.
