Precision Measurement of Low-Energy Antiprotons with GAPS for Dark Matter and Primordial Black Hole Physics
The general antiparticle spectrometer (GAPS) experiment is an indirect dark matter search focusing on antiparticles produced by WIMP annihilation and decay in the Galactic halo. In addition to the


Dark matter searches with cosmic antideuterons: status and perspectives
The search for antideuterons in cosmic rays has been proposed as a promising channel for dark matter indirect detection, especially for dark matter particles with a low or intermediate mass. With the
Antideuteron fluxes from dark matter annihilation in diffusion models
Antideuterons are among the most promising galactic cosmic-ray-related targets for dark matter indirect detection. Currently only upper limits exist on the flux, but the development of new
Prospects of antideuteron detection from dark matter annihilations or decays at AMS-02 and GAPS
The search for cosmic antideuterons has been proposed as a promising method to indirectly detect dark matter, due to the very small background flux from spallations expected at the energies relevant
Antideuterons as a Signature of Supersymmetric Dark Matter
Once the energy spectrum of the secondary component is well understood, measurements of the antiproton cosmic–ray flux at the Earth will be a powerful way to indirectly probe for the existence of
Enhanced anti-deuteron Dark Matter signal and the implications of PAMELA
Constraints on WIMP dark matter from the high energy PAMELA p/p data.
A new calculation of the p[over ]/p ratio in cosmic rays is compared to the recent PAMELA data. The good match up to 100 GeV allows us to set constraints on exotic contributions from thermal weakly
Antideuterons from dark matter annihilations and hadronization model dependence
We calculate the antideuteron yield in dark matter annihilations on an event-by-event basis using the HERWIG++ Monte Carlo generator. We present the resulting antideuteron fluxes for quark and gauge
Cosmic Rays Antideuteron Sensitivity for AMS-02 Experiment
For energies less than 3 GeV/n, the Cosmic Rays Antideuteron component originated from spallation becomes very small due to kinematic reasons and the detection of even a single antideuteron will
General Antiparticle Spectrometer Experiment (GAPS): Recent Progress and Future Plans
We report on recent work on the General Antiparticle Spectrometer Experiment (GAPS). GAPS is a balloon‐based search for antideuterons generated in the annihilation of weakly interacting massive
