Abstract The technibaryon constitute a possible dark matter candidate. Such a particle with electroweak quantum numbers is already nearly ruled out as the dominant component of the galactic dark matter by nuclear recoil experiments. Here, the scattering of singlet technibaryons, without electroweak quantum numbers, is considered. For scalar technibaryons the most important interaction is the charge radius. The scattering rates are typically of order 10 −4 (kg keV day) −1 for a technicolor scale… Expand
Dark matter detection in the light of recent experimental results
The existence of dark matter was suggested, using simple gravitational arguments, seventy years ago. Although we are now convinced that most of the mass in the Universe is indeed some nonluminousExpand
Signals of composite electroweak-neutral Dark Matter: LHC/direct detection interplay
Abstract In a strong-coupling picture of ElectroWeak Symmetry Breaking, a composite electroweak-neutral state in the TeV mass range, carrying a global (quasi-)conserved charge, makes a plausible DarkExpand

Abstract We review theoretically well-motivated dark-matter candidates, and pathways to their discovery, in the light of recent results from collider physics, astrophysics, and cosmology. Taken inExpand
Cosmology with light axions from technicolor
Abstract We consider cosmological consequences of the spontaneous breaking of a global symmetry that is anomalous under technicolor interactions, leading to the emergence of a light axion-likeExpand
Light magnetic dark matter in direct detection searches

Magnetic fluffy dark matter
A bstractWe explore extensions of inelastic Dark Matter and Magnetic inelastic Dark Matter where the WIMP can scatter to a tower of heavier states. We assume a WIMP mass mχ ~ $ \mathcal{O} $(1-100)Expand
Quirky composite dark matter
We propose a new dark matter candidate, 'quirky dark matter', that is a scalar baryonic bound state of a new non-Abelian force that becomes strong below the electroweak scale. The bound state is madeExpand
Ultraminimal technicolor and its dark matter technicolor interacting massive particles
We introduce an explicit model with technifermion matter transforming according to multiple representations of the underlying technicolor gauge group. The model features simultaneously the smallestExpand
Collider Detection of Dark Matter Electromagnetic Anapole Moments
Dark matter that interacts with the Standard Model by exchanging photons through higher multipole interactions occurs in a wide range of both strongly as well as weakly coupled hidden sector models.Expand
Chromo-Rayleigh interactions of dark matter
A bstractFor a wide range of models, dark matter can interact with QCD gluons via chromo-Rayleigh interactions. We point out that the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), as a gluon machine, provides aExpand


Detection of galactic halo magninos via their coherent interaction with heavy nuclei
Abstract Magninos (neutral spin 1 2 fermions with mass 4–10 GeV and anomalous magnetic moment μ≈10−2) have been proposed as a solution to both the solar neutrino and dark matter problems. DirectExpand

Laboratory limits on galactic cold dark matter.
limits are set on candidates for cold-dark-matter particles in the halo of the authors' Galaxy from their interaction with a very-low-background Ge detector used to search for double ..beta.. decay, with slightly better limits on magninos and cosmions. Expand
A comment on the strong interactions of color-neutral technibaryons
Abstract We estimate the cross section for the scattering of a slow, color-neutral technibaryon made of colored constituents with nuclei. We find a cross section of order A 2 ·10 −45 cm 2 , where AExpand
Limits on cold dark matter from the Gotthard Ge experiment
Abstract Data from a high purity Ge detector operated in the Gotthard underground laboratory, corresponding to 51.6 kg day, were used to set limits on cold dark matter. In particular, Dirac neutrinosExpand
Some estimates of interaction in matter of neutral technibaryons made of colored constituents
Abstract We estimate the cross section of a slow technibaryon made of colored constituents with nuclei. This estimate is based on analogy with QED two-photon forces between a charge (the quark) and aExpand
Opening the window on strongly interacting dark matter.
It is shown that, while results from decay, cosmic-ray detectors, galactic-halo stability, the cooling of molecular clouds, proton-decay detectors, and the existence of old neutron stars and the Earth constrain the interactions of the missing matter with ordinary matter over a broad range of parameter space, there still exist several windows for SIMP's.
