Dark Matter Search Results from the PICO-2L C3F8 Bubble Chamber.

These data provide the most sensitive direct detection constraints on WIMP-proton spin-dependent scattering to date, with significant sensitivity at low W IMP masses for spin-independent WIMp-nucleon scattering.

DAMA/LIBRA-phase2 in WIMP effective models

The DAMA/LIBRA collaboration has recently released updated results from their search for the annual modulation signal expected from Dark Matter (DM) scattering in their NaI detectors. We have fitted

Understanding WIMP-baryon interactions with direct detection: a roadmap

We study prospects of dark-matter direct-detection searches for probing non-relativistic effective theory for WIMP-baryon scattering. We simulate a large set of noisy recoil-energy spectra for

Direct detection of WIMPs.

If the Milky Way’s DM halo is composed of WIMPs, then the WIMP flux on the Earth is of the order of 105(100 GeV/mχ)cm−2 s−1. This flux is suf- ficiently large that, even though the WIMPs are weakly

Chapter 2 Direct Detection of WIMPs 2 . 1 Experimental Strategies for WIMP Detection

  • Physics
  • 2017
In the next chapters we are going to give an overview of the main WIMP search strategies, which fall in three big categories: • Direct searches probe the scattering cross section of WIMPs with

Low mass WIMP and axion searches with the EDELWEISS experiment

In spite of the recent successes of observational cosmology, most of the universe remains poorly known. Known particles (which we call baryons) only make up 5% of the total content of the universe.

Results on the Spin-Dependent Scattering of Weakly Interacting Massive Particles on Nucleons from the Run 3 Data of the LUX Experiment.

The spin-dependent WIMP-neutron limit is the most sensitive constraint to date.



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.

First results of the Phase II SIMPLE dark matter search.

These results yield a limit of |a(p)|<0.32 for M(W)=50 GeV/c² on the spin-dependent sector of weakly interacting massive particle-nucleus interactions with a 50% reduction in the previously allowed region of the phase space, formerly defined by XENON, KIMS, and PICASSO.

Results from 730 kg days of the CRESST-II Dark Matter search

The CRESST-II cryogenic Dark Matter search, aiming at detection of WIMPs via elastic scattering off nuclei in CaWO4 crystals, completed 730 kg days of data taking in 2011. We present the data

Compatibility of DAMA/LIBRA dark matter detection with other searches

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

Results from a low-energy analysis of the CDMS II germanium data.

A reanalysis of data from the Cryogenic Dark Matter Search (CDMS II) experiment using eight germanium detectors is reanalyzed with a lowered, 2 keV recoil-energy threshold to give increased sensitivity to interactions from weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs) with masses below ∼10  GeV/c(2).

Improved limits on spin-dependent WIMP-proton interactions from a two liter CF3I bubble chamber.

Data from the operation of a bubble chamber filled with 3.5 kg of CF3I in a shallow underground site confirm that alpha decays generate a significantly louder acoustic emission than single nuclear recoils, leading to an efficient background discrimination.

Multiyear search for dark matter annihilations in the Sun with the AMANDA-II and IceCube detectors

A search for an excess of muon neutrinos from dark matter annihilations in the Sun has been performed with the AMANDA-II neutrino telescope using data collected in 812 days of live time between 2001


We present the result of an indirect search for high energy neutrinos from Weakly Interacting Massive Particle (WIMP) annihilation in the Sun using upward-going muon (upmu) events at

Implications for the Constrained MSSM from a new prediction for b to s gamma

We re-examine the properties of the Constrained MSSM in light of updated constraints, paying particular attention to the impact of the recent substantial shift in the Standard Model prediction for →
