Gamma Rays from Top-Mediated Dark Matter Annihilations

Lines in the energy spectrum of gamma rays are a fascinating experimental signal, which are often considered "smoking gun" evidence of dark matter annihilation. The current generation of gamma ray

Gamma-ray lines and one-loop continuum from s-channel dark matter annihilations

The era of indirect detection searches for dark matter has begun, with the sensitivities of gamma-ray detectors now approaching the parameter space relevant for weakly interacting massive particles.

Looking for new charged states at the LHC: signatures of magnetic and Rayleigh dark matter

A bstractMagnetic and Rayleigh dark matter are models describing weak interactions of dark matter with electromagnetism through non-renormalizable operators of dimensions 5 and 7, respectively. Such

Probing charged matter through h → γγ, gamma ray lines, and EDMs

A bstractNumerous experiments currently underway offer the potential to indirectly probe new charged particles with masses at the weak scale. For example, the tentative excess in h → γγ decays and

LHC constraints on dark matter with (130 GeV) gamma ray lines

Dark matter annihilation into photons in our galaxy would constitute an exciting indirect signal of its existence, as underscored by tentative evidence for 130 GeV dark matter in Fermi/LAT data.

Dark matter annihilation via Higgs and gamma-ray channels

Recent studies show that the GeV gamma-ray excess signal from the Milky Way center can be best explained by ∼40GeV$\sim 40~\mbox{GeV}$ dark matter annihilating via bb¯$b\bar{b}$ channel. However, the

Internal bremsstrahlung signatures in light of direct dark matter searches

Although proposed long ago, the search for internal bremsstrahlung signatures has only recently been made possible by the excellent energy resolution of ground-based and satellite-borne gamma-ray

A Tentative Gamma-Ray Line from Dark Matter Annihilation at the Fermi Large Area Telescope

The observation of a gamma-ray line in the cosmic-ray fluxes would be a smoking-gun signature for dark matter annihilation or decay in the Universe. We present an improved search for such signatures

Constraining dark matter models from a combined analysis of Milky Way satellites with the Fermi Large Area Telescope.

This work presents a search for dark matter consisting of weakly interacting massive particles, applying a joint likelihood analysis to 10 satellite galaxies with 24 months of data of the Fermi Large Area Telescope, and is able to rule out models with the most generic cross section, using gamma rays.

What if dark matter gamma-ray lines come with gluon lines?

In dark matter (DM) models, the production of a $\ensuremath{\gamma}$ line (or of a ``box-shaped'' $\ensuremath{\gamma}$-ray spectrum) from DM annihilation proceeds in general from a loop diagram

Fermi LAT Search for Internal Bremsstrahlung Signatures from Dark Matter Annihilation

A commonly encountered obstacle in indirect searches for galactic dark matter is how to disentangle possible signals from astrophysical backgrounds. Given that such signals are most likely

Higgs in space

We consider the possibility that the Higgs can be produced in dark matter annihilations, appearing as a line in the spectrum of gamma rays at an energy determined by the masses of the WIMP and the

Gamma lines without a continuum: thermal models for the Fermi-LAT 130 GeV Gamma line

A bstractRecent claims of a line in the Fermi-LAT photon spectrum at 130 GeV are suggestive of dark matter annihilation in the galactic center and other dark matter-dominated regions. If the Fermi

The Tevatron at the frontier of dark matter direct detection

Direct detection of dark matter (DM) requires an interaction of dark matter particles with nucleons. The same interaction can lead to dark matter pair production at a hadron collider, and with the

Results are presented from a search for new physics in the final state containing a photon and missing transverse energy. The data correspond to an integrated luminosity of 5.0 inverse femtobarns

Decaying vs Annihilating Dark Matter in Light of a Tentative Gamma-Ray Line

Recently reported tentative evidence for a gamma-ray line in the Fermi-LAT data is of great potential interest for identifying the nature of dark matter. We compare the implications for decaying and

Scalar multiplet dark matter

We perform a systematic study of the phenomenology associated to models where the dark matter consists in the neutral component of a scalar SU(2)L n-uplet, up to n = 7. If one includes only the pure
