Mirror dark matter interpretation of the DAMA/Libra annual modulation signal

Abstract

The DAMA/Libra experiment has recently confirmed the annual modulation signal obtained in the earlier DAMA/NaI experiment, providing strong evidence that they have actually detected dark matter. We examine the implications of this experiment for the mirror dark matter candidate. We show that mirror dark matter successfully explains the latest DAMA/Libra data, whilst also being consistent with the null results of other direct detection experiments.
