  • Abstract We use the results of direct and indirect searches for weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs) to obtain bounds on various electro-magnetic form factors of WIMPs. The limits on the recoil signal in underground dark matter detection experiments, with standard assumptions about the density and r.m.s. velocity of WIMPs in the halo, can be translated into the following model-independent bounds on the magnetic dipole, electric dipole, quadrupole and anapole moments and the… CONTINUE READING
