A search for muon neutrinos from Kaluza-Klein dark matter annihilations in the Sun has been performed with the 22-string configuration of the IceCube neutrino detector using data collected in 104.3 days of live time in 2007. No excess over the expected atmospheric background has been observed. Upper limits have been obtained on the annihilation rate of captured lightest Kaluza-Klein particle (LKP) WIMPs in the Sun and converted to limits on the LKP-proton cross sections for LKP masses in the… Expand

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 ),Expand
Searches for Dark Matter with the IceCube Detector
Construction of the IceCube neutrino observatory was recently completed, including the full DeepCore sub-array, a low-energy extension of the IceCube detector. We present recent results from theExpand
Direct Detection Constraints on Dark Matter Event Rates in Neutrino Telescopes, and Collider Implications
Neutrino telescopes are looking to detect neutrinos produced by the annihilation of weakly interacting massive particle (WIMP) dark matter in the sun. The event rate depends on the dark matterExpand
Dark matter in the Sun: scattering off electrons vs nucleons
The annihilation of dark matter (DM) particles accumulated in the Sun could produce a flux of neutrinos, which is potentially detectable with neutrino detectors/telescopes and the DM elasticExpand
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 possibilityExpand
Enhanced neutrino signals from dark matter annihilation in the Sun via metastable mediators
We calculate the neutrino signal resulting from annihilation of secluded dark matter in the Sun. In this class of models, dark matter annihilates first into metastable mediators, which subsequentlyExpand
High Energy Neutrino Astronomy: IceCube 22 and 40 Strings
Abstract In this paper, after a short introduction to the physics of neutrino telescopes, we will report on first performances of the IceCube detector and a selection of preliminary results obtainedExpand
Direct detection of dark matter degenerate with colored particles in mass
In this Letter we explore the direct detection of the dark matter in the universe, assuming the dark matter particles are degenerate in mass with new colored particles below TeV scale. The scenarioExpand
Updated constraints on velocity and momentum-dependent asymmetric dark matter
We present updated constraints on dark matter models with momentum-dependent or velocity-dependent interactions with nuclei, based on direct detection and solar physics. We improve our previousExpand
High-Energy Neutrino Astrophysics: Status and Perspectives
Abstract Neutrinos are unique cosmic messengers. Present attempts are directed to extend the window of cosmic neutrino observation from low energies (Sun, supernovae) to much higher energies. The aimExpand


Phd by thesis
Deposits of clastic carbonate-dominated (calciclastic) sedimentary slope systems in the rock record have been identified mostly as linearly-consistent carbonate apron deposits, even though mostExpand
