The DAMA/NaI and DAMA/LIBRA annual modulation data, which may be interpreted as a signal for the existence of weakly interacting dark matter (WIMPs) in our galactic halo, are examined in light of null results from other experiments: CDMS, XENON10, CRESST I, CoGeNT, TEXONO, and Super-Kamiokande (SuperK). We use the energy spectrum of the combined DAMA modulation data given in 36 bins, and include the effect of channeling. Several statistical tools are implemented in our study: likelihood ratio… Expand
Compatibility of DAMA/LIBRA dark matter detection with other searches in light of new Galactic rotation velocity measurements
The DAMA/NaI and DAMA/LIBRA annual modulation data, which may be interpreted as a signal for the existence of weakly interacting dark matter (WIMPs) in our galactic halo, are re-examined in light ofExpand
Inelastic dark matter, non-standard halos and the DAMA/LIBRA results
The DAMA collaboration have claimed to detect particle dark matter (DM) via an annual modulation in their observed recoil event rate. This appears to be in strong disagreement with the null resultsExpand

There is a long standing debate about whether or not the annual modulation signal reported by the DAMA/LIBRA collaboration is induced by Weakly Interacting Massive Particles~(WIMP) in the galaxy'sExpand
Inelastic dark matter and DAMA/LIBRA: An experimentum crucis
The DAMA/LIBRA Collaboration has detected an annual modulation of the recoil rate in NaI crystals with the phase expected for weakly interacting massive particle (WIMP) scattering events. This signalExpand
Lowering the Threshold in the DAMA Dark Matter Search
The DAMA experiment searches for Weakly Interacting Massive Particle (WIMP) dark matter via its expected but rare interactions within the detector, where the interaction rates will modulateExpand
Tests of WIMP Dark Matter Candidates with Direct Dark Matter Detection Experiments
Author(s): Georgescu, Andreea | Advisor(s): Gelmini, Graciela | Abstract: We reexamine the current direct dark matter (DM) detection data for several types of DM candidates, both assuming theExpand
ANAIS-112 sensitivity in the search for dark matter annual modulation
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 orExpand
Mirror dark matter interpretations of the DAMA, CoGeNT and CRESST-II data
The CRESST-II collaboration have announced evidence for the direct detection of dark matter in 730 kg-days exposure of a CaWO$_4$ target. We examine these new results, along with DAMA and CoGeNTExpand
Direct detection anomalies in light of GAIA data
Measurements from the Gaia satellite have greatly increased our knowledge of the dark matter velocity distributions in the Solar neighborhood. There is evidence for multiple cold structures nearby,Expand
Probing DAMA/LIBRA data in the full parameter space of WIMP effective models of inelastic scattering
We discuss the compatibility of the combined annual modulation effect measured by DAMA/LIBRA-phase1 and DAMA/LIBRA-phase2 with an explanation in terms of inelastic scattering events induced by theExpand
