Following up on our earlier work predicting fractionally charged supermassive gravitinos, we explain their potential relevance as novel candidates for Dark Matter and discuss possible signatures and ways to detect them. 
Superheavy gravitinos and ultra-high energy cosmic rays
We argue that the superheavy gravitinos that we had previously proposed as candidates for Dark Matter can offer a possible explanation for the ultra-high energy cosmic ray (UHECR) events observed atExpand

I begin by briefly reviewing the evidence for the existence of Dark Matter (DM), emphasizing that {\em many} observations, at length scales between kpc (the size of the smallest galaxies) and GpcExpand
Inflation, gravity mediated supersymmetry breaking, and de Sitter vacua in supergravity with a Kähler-invariant Fayet-Iliopoulos term
We use a new mechanism for generating a Fayet-Iliopoulos term in supergravity, which is not associated to an R symmetry, to construct a semi-realistic theory of slow-roll inflation for a theory withExpand

Baryonic and leptonic GeV dark matter
Abstract We perform a systematic analysis of models with GeV-scale dark matter coupled to baryons and leptons. Such theories provide a natural framework to explain the matter-antimatter asymmetry ofExpand

Abstract We suggest that the ultimate remnant of an evaporating black hole is an infinitely degenerate particle at the Planck mass. Arguments are presented for the stability of these objects andExpand
Neuton stars: Graveyard of charged dark matter
Abstract If charged massive particles (10 2 GeV ⪅ m x ⪅ 10 16 GeV) made up the dark halo of the Galaxy, they would be present in large numbers in disk stars. In neutron stars theses particles wouldExpand

Planckian Interacting Massive Particles as Dark Matter.
TLDR
It is shown that the most natural mass larger than 0.01M_{p} is already ruled out by the absence of tensor modes in the cosmic microwave background (CMB), which indicates that there is a subtle connection between quantum gravity, the physics of primordial inflation, and the nature of dark matter.

Charged dark matter
Abstract We propose that dark matter is made of CHAMP's, charged massive particles that survive annihilation in the early Universe. We constrain champs to be matter-antimatter symmetric, to provideExpand

Super-heavy dark matter – Towards predictive scenarios from inflation
A generic prediction of the Coleman–Weinberg inflation is the existence of a heavy particle sector whose interactions with the inflaton, the lightest state in this sector, generate the inflatonExpand
Millicharge or Decay: A Critical Take on Minimal Dark Matter
Minimal Dark Matter (MDM) is a theoretical framework highly appreciated for its minimality and yet its predictivity. Of the two only viable candidates singled out in the original analysis, the scalarExpand
Superheavy dark matter
We show that in large-field inflationary scenarios, superheavy (many orders of magnitude larger than the weak scale) dark matter will be produced in cosmologically interesting quantities ifExpand
Reopening the window on charged dark matter
We reexamine the limits on charged dark matter particles. We show that if their mass and charge fall in the range 100(qX/e)2 mX 108(qX/e) TeV, then magnetic fields prevent particles in the halo fromExpand
