The DAMA project operates as an observatory for rare processes, located deep underground at the Gran Sasso National Laboratory of the I.N.F.N. The main apparatus, DAMA/LIBRA, is investigating the presence of Dark Matter particles in the galactic halo by exploiting the model independent DM annual modulation signature. The present DAMA/LIBRA and the former DAMA/NaI (exposed masses: ≃ 250 kg and ≃ 100 kg of highly radiopure NaI(Tl), respectively) experiments have released so far a total exposure… 

DAMA/LIBRA annual modulation and axion quark nugget dark matter model

The DAMA/LIBRA (DL) experiment shows 9.5σ evidence for an annual modulation in the (1–6) keV energy range, strongly suggesting that the observed modulation has a dark matter origin. However, the

Is DAMAs modulation amplitude changing with time

If dark matter is composed of weakly interacting particles, Earth’s orbital motion induces a small annual variation in the rate at which these particles interact in a terrestrial detector. The DAMA

Background Simulations and WIMP Search with Galactic Signature Dark Matter Experiments

There is now compelling evidence that ordinary baryonic matter only represents 15% of the matter content of the Universe. Observational results suggest that the remaining 85% may be constituted of

Detailed Characterization of Nuclear Recoil Pulse Shape Discrimination in the DarkSide-50 Direct Dark Matter Experiment

While evidence of non-baryonic dark matter has been accumulating for decades, its exact nature continues to remain a mystery. Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs) are a well motivated

DarkSide-20k: A 20 tonne two-phase LAr TPC for direct dark matter detection at LNGS

Abstract.Building on the successful experience in operating the DarkSide-50 detector, the DarkSide Collaboration is going to construct DarkSide-20k, a direct WIMP search detector using a two-phase

KamLAND-PICO project to search for cosmic dark matter

KamLAND-PICO project aims to search for WIMPs dark matter by means of NaI(Tl) scintillator. To investigate the WIMPs candidate whose cross section is as small as $10^{-9}$ pb, a pure NaI(Tl) crystal

Two-integral distribution functions in axisymmetric galaxies: Implications for dark matter searches

We address the problem of reconstructing the phase-space distribution function for an extended collisionless system, with known density profile and in equilibrium within an axisymmetric gravitational

Measurement of Seasonal Variations of Horizontal Muons with Underground LVD Setup

Abstract The Large-Volume scintillation Detector commonly known as LVD and located at the Gran Sasso Laboratory at an average depth of 3650 m w.e. measures muons of intensity $$3.31\times 10^{-4}$$

Dark Matter direct detection from a model with spin-2 mediators

Dark Matter (DM) and its nature is one of the most interesting problems in modern physics. DM constitutes the 27% of the total content of the Universe and evidence of its existence have been
