H 2 dark matter in the galactic halo from EGRET

Abstract

We present a model for the interpretation of the γ-ray background emission from the Galactic halo, which we attribute to interaction of high-energy cosmic rays with dense molecular clumps. In a wide range of clump parameters we calculate the expected γ-photon flux, taking into account for the first time optical depth effects. This allows us to derive new… (More)
