We investigate the possibility that Dark Matter could be made of scalar candidates and focus, in particular, on the unusual mass range between a few MeV’s and a few GeV’s. After showing why the Lee-Weinberg limit (which usually forbids a Dark Matter mass below a few GeV’s) does not necessarily apply in the case of scalar particles, we discuss how light(More)
We report three experiments which investigate the lateralization of categorical and coordinate processing. In all experiments, participants judged the position of a dot relative to a line. We manipulated display luminance (controlling for contrast), polarity (black-on-white versus white-on-black displays), and exposure duration (100, 150, and 200 ms). The(More)
We examine the expected signal from annihilation events in realistic cold dark matter halos. If the WIMP is a neutralino, with an annihilation cross-section predicted in minimal SUSY models for the lightest stable relic particle, the central cusps and dense substructure seen in simulated halos may produce a substantial flux of energetic gamma rays. We(More)
The porosity of a typical activated carbon is investigated with small angle neutron scattering (SANS), using the contrast matching technique, by changing the hydrogen/deuterium content of the absorbed liquid (toluene) to extract the carbon density at different scattering vector (Q) values and by measuring the p/p0 dependence of the SANS, using fully(More)
Various double beta decay modes of Cd, Zn and Te isotopes are explored with the help of CdTe and CdZnTe semiconductor detectors. The data set is splitted in an energy range below 1MeV having a statistics of 134.5 g·d and one above 1MeV resulting in 532 g·d. No signals were observed in all channels under investigation. New improved limits for the(More)
