We interpret recent IceCube results on searches for dark matter accumulated in the Sun in terms of the lightest Kaluza–Klein excitation (assumed here to be the Kaluza–Klein photon, $$B^1$$ B 1 ), obtaining improved limits on the annihilation rate in the Sun, the resulting neutrino flux at the Earth and on the $$B^1$$ B 1 -proton cross-sections, for $$B^1$$ B 1 masses in the range 30–3000 GeV. These results improve previous results from IceCube in its 22-string configuration by up to an order of… 

Search for GeV-scale Dark Matter Annihilation in the Sun with IceCube DeepCore

The Sun provides an excellent target for studying spin-dependent dark matter-proton scattering due to its high matter density and abundant hydrogen content. Dark matter particles from the Galactic

Limits on a muon flux from neutralino annihilations in the sun with the IceCube 22-string detector.

Upper limits have been obtained on the annihilation rate of captured neutralinos in the Sun and converted to limits on the weakly interacting massive particle (WIMP) proton cross sections for WIMP masses in the range 250-5000 GeV.

Neutrinos from Kaluza-Klein dark matter in the Sun

We investigate indirect neutrino signals from annihilations of Kaluza-Klein dark matter in the Sun. Especially, we examine a five- as well as a six-dimensional model, and allow for the possibility
