NLO+NLL collider bounds, Dirac fermion and scalar dark matter in the B–L model

Baryon and lepton numbers being accidental global symmetries of the Standard Model (SM), it is natural to promote them to local symmetries. However, to preserve anomaly-freedom, only combinations of

Prospects and blind spots for neutralino dark matter

A bstractUsing a simplified model framework, we assess observational limits and discovery prospects for neutralino dark matter, taken here to be a general admixture of bino, wino, and Higgsino.

Light stops, blind spots, and isospin violation in the MSSM

A bstractIn the framework of the MSSM, we examine several simplified models where only a few superpartners are light. This allows us to study WIMP-nucleus scattering in terms of a handful of MSSM

Likelihood analysis of the minimal AMSB model

A likelihood analysis of the minimal anomaly-mediated supersymmetry-breaking (mAMSB) model is performed and it is found that either a wino-like or a Higgsino-like neutralino LSP, may provide the cold dark matter (DM), both with similar likelihoods.

Reconstructing WIMP properties through an interplay of signal measurements in direct detection, Fermi-LAT, and CTA searches for dark matter

We examine the projected ability to reconstruct the mass, scattering, and annihilation cross section of dark matter in the new generation of large underground detectors, XENON-1T, SuperCDMS, and

Detecting underabundant neutralinos

A bstractThe electroweak sector may play a crucial role in discovering supersymmetry. We systematically investigate the patterns of the MSSM-like electroweakinos, when the neutralino relic abundance

Finding a needle in a haystack: Background studies & WIMP detection efficiency in LUX

The evidences for the existence of Dark Matter, the way it helps in shaping the Universe the authors observe today, the modulation of the Dark Matter halo that is postulated to envelop their galaxy and what is expected to be observed in a direct detection experiment are explored.

Review of Direct Searches for Dark Matter and the Role of Inorganic Scintillators

This review covers direct searches for dark matter, and the role inorganic scintillators have to play in them. Particle dark matter may make up most of the matter in the universe. Direct searches for

Review of Direct Searches for Dark Matter and the Role of Inorganic Scintillators

Blind Spots for neutralino Dark Matter in the MSSM with an intermediate m_A

We study the spin-independent neutralino Dark Matter scattering off heavy nuclei in the MSSM. We identify analytically the blind spots in direct detection for intermediate values of $m_A$. In the



Dark matter results from 100 live days of XENON100 data.

The XENON100 detector, installed underground at the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso of INFN, Italy, finds no evidence for dark matter, leading to the most stringent limit on dark matter interactions today.

A 83Krm Source for Use in Low-background Liquid Xenon Time Projection Chambers

We report the testing of a charcoal-based Kr-83m source for use in calibrating a low background two-phase liquid xenon detector. Kr-83m atoms produced through the decay of Rb-83 are introduced into a

Neutrino coherent scattering rates at direct dark matter detectors

Neutrino-induced recoil events may constitute a background to direct dark matter searches, particularly for those detectors that strive to reach the ton-scale and beyond. This paper discusses the

A 83Krm source for use in low-background liquid Xenon time projection chambers

We report the testing of a charcoal-based 83Krm source for use in calibrating a low-background two-phase liquid xenon detector. 83Krm atoms produced through the decay of 83Rb are introduced into a

Observation of two-neutrino double-beta decay in 136Xe with the EXO-200 detector.

The observed decay rate provides new input to matrix element calculations and to the search for the more interesting neutrinoless double-beta decay, the most sensitive probe for the existence of Majorana particles and the measurement of the neutrino mass scale.

Muon-induced background study for underground laboratories

We provide a comprehensive study of the cosmic-ray muon flux and induced activity as a function of overburden along with a convenient parametrization of the salient fluxes and differential

Calibration of a Liquid Xenon Detector with Kr-83m

We report the preparation of a $^{83}\mathrm{Kr}{}^{m}$ source and its use in calibrating a liquid xenon detector. $^{83}\mathrm{Kr}{}^{m}$ atoms were produced through the decay of $^{83}\mathrm{Rb}$
