Abstract

We assess the prospects for indirect detection of Weakly Interacting Massive Particles using a large Liquid Argon TPC detector. Signal events will consist of energetic electron (anti)neutrinos coming from the decay of τ leptons and b quarks produced in WIMP annihilation in the core of the Sun. Background contamination from atmospheric neutrinos is expected… (More)
