Exploring light mediators with low-threshold direct detection experiments
We explore the potential of future cryogenic direct detection experiments to determine the properties of the mediator that communicates the interactions between dark matter and nuclei. Due to their
Direct detection signatures of self-interacting dark matter with a light mediator
Self-interacting dark matter (SIDM) is a simple and well-motivated scenario that could explain long-standing puzzles in structure formation on small scales. If the required self-interaction arises
Background discrimination of EDELWEISS-III cryogenic Ge-detectors for dark matter search
The EDELWEIS-III experiment is a direct dark matter search experiment using cryogenic Ge detectors with dual signal readout in ionization and heat for particle identification and background
Prospects for detection of target-dependent annual modulation in direct dark matter searches
Earth's rotation about the Sun produces an annual modulation in the expected scattering rate at direct dark matter detection experiments. The annual modulation as a function of the recoil energy ER
Sub-GeV Dark Matter Searches and Electric Field Studies for the LUX and LZ Experiments
The nature of dark matter (DM) remains a mystery since it has so far eluded detection in the laboratory. To that end, the Large Underground Xenon (LUX) experiment was built to directly observe the
A brief review of dark matter
In this paper we review dark matter as sterile neutrinos, fermions, with their present and possibly future detection via neutrino oscillations. The creation of dark matter (DM) via interactions with
Probing new physics underground
Throughout the Universe we measure the gravitational effect of dark matter (DM). This DM makes up around 63% of the total matter in the Universe today and cannot be explained by the normal
Lectures on Dark Matter Physics
Rotation curve measurements provided the first strong indication that a significant fraction of matter in the Universe is non-baryonic. Since then, a tremendous amount of progress has been made on
Improved exclusion limit for light dark matter from e+e− annihilation in NA64
The current most stringent constraints for the existence of sub-GeV dark matter coupling to Standard Model via a massive vector boson A 0 were set by the NA64 experiment for the mass region m A 0 ≲
Investigation of Higgs portal dark matter models: from collider, indirect and direct searches to electroweak baryogenesis
This thesis addresses two limitations of the Standard Model (SM) of particle physics, namely dark matter (DM) and the origin of matter-antimatter asymmetry. Specifically, we study the Higgs portal DM


Detecting cold dark-matter candidates.
The growing synergy between astrophysics, particle physics, and low background experiments strengthens the possibility of detecting astrophysical non-baryonic matter. The idea of direct detection is
Detection of Cosmic Dark Matter
This is a mid-1988 status report on attempts to detect particle dark matter. We have some prejudice in limiting ourselves to dark matter candidates that we feel are especially motivated: weakly
Long-term study of backgrounds in the DRIFT-II directional dark matter experiment
Low-pressure gas Time Projection Chambers being developed for directional dark matter searches offer a technology with strong particle identification capability combined with the potential to produce
Implication of neutrino backgrounds on the reach of next generation dark matter direct detection experiments
As direct dark matter experiments continue to increase in size, they will become sensitive to neutrinos from astrophysical sources. For experiments that do not have directional sensitivity, coherent
Signal modulation in cold-dark-matter detection.
The seasonal modulation of the signal can be used to detect WIMP's even at low-signal-to-background levels and thus without the necessity of going to very-low-energy thresholds, suggesting the prospects for detecting a variety of cold-dark-matter candidates may be closer at hand than previously thought.
Dark matter sensitivities of the Majorana Demonstrator
The Majorana Demonstrator is an array of natural and enriched high purity germanium detectors that will search for the neutrinoless double-beta decay of Germanium-76 and perform a search for weakly
Kaluza-Klein dark matter.
We propose that cold dark matter is made of Kaluza-Klein particles and explore avenues for its detection. The lightest Kaluza-Klein state is an excellent dark matter candidate if standard model
First data from DM-Ice17
Astrophysical observations have provided convincing evidence for the existence of dark matter, yet direct observation of the dark matter particles has not been conclusively established. DAMA
