ANAIS-112 is a dark matter direct detection experiment that operates 112 kg of NaI(Tl) scintillators at the Canfranc Underground Laboratory (LSC, Spain). Its main goal is to test in a model independent way one of the most puzzling results in the present particle physics scenario: the DAMA/LIBRA observation of an annual modulation in the detection rate compatible with that expected for dark matter. This signal is in strong tension with the negative results of other very sensitive experiments… 
Dark Matter Searches Using NaI(Tl) at the Canfranc Underground Laboratory: Past, Present and Future
Sodium Iodide Thallium doped (NaI(Tl)) scintillation detectors have been applied to the direct searches for dark matter since the 1980s and have produced one of the most challenging results in the
Characterization of SABRE crystal NaI-33 with direct underground counting
Ultra-pure NaI(Tl) crystals are the key element for a model-independent verification of the long standing DAMA result and a powerful means to search for the annual modulation signature of dark matter
Influence of NaI background and mass on testing the DAMA modulation
NaI experiments should be sensitive to the same DM-SM interactions proposed to explain the observed DAMA modulation. As such, they are often called a ‘model independent’ test of the signal. While the
Inelastic dark matter scattering off Thallium cannot save DAMA
We study the compatibility of the observed DAMA modulation signal with inelastic scattering of dark matter (DM) off of the 0.1% Thallium (Tl) dopant in DAMA. In this work we test whether there exist
The Role of Small Scale Experiments in the Direct Detection of Dark Matter
In the direct detection of the galactic dark matter, experiments using cryogenic solid-state detectors or noble liquids play for years a very relevant role, with increasing target mass and more and
DAMA annual modulation is not due to electron recoils from plasma/mirror dark matter with kinetic mixing
If dark matter is composed of new fundamental particles, Earth's orbital motion around the Sun may induce an annual modulation in the rate at which these particles interact in a terrestrial detector.
Indirect detection constraints on the scotogenic dark matter model
Radiative seesaw models have the attractive property of providing dark matter candidates in addition to the generation of neutrino masses. Here we present a study of neutrino signals from the
Normal and Reverse Annual Modulations of Elastic WIMP-Nucleus Scattering Signals
Following our earlier work on the 3-dimensional effective velocity distribution of Galactic WIMPs (not only impinging on our detectors but also) scattering off target nuclei, in this paper, we
Bayesian analysis of time dependence of DAMA annual modulation amplitude
We implement a test of the variability of the per-cycle annual modulation amplitude in the different phases of the DAMA/LIBRA experiment using Bayesian model comparison. Using frequentist methods, a

The annual modulation measured by the  DAMA/LIBRA experiment can be explained by the interaction of dark matter WIMPs in NaI(Tl) scintillator detectors. Other experiments, with different targets or
First Results on Dark Matter Annual Modulation from the ANAIS-112 Experiment.
The annual modulation analysis of 1.5 years of data from ANAIS-112 supports the estimated sensitivity for the accumulated exposure, which supports the projected goal of reaching a 3σ sensitivity to the DAMA/LIBRA result in five years of data taking.
