Axion dark matter in the time of primordial black holes
We investigate the production of QCD axion dark matter in a nonstandard cosmological era triggered by primordial black holes (PBHs) that fully evaporate before the onset of BBN. Even if PBHs cannot
Signatures of primordial black hole dark matter at DUNE and THEIA
Primordial black holes (PBHs) are a potential dark matter candidate whose masses can span over many orders of magnitude. If they have masses in the 1015–1017 g range, they can emit sizeable fluxes of
Axion-like particles from primordial black holes shining through the Universe
We consider a cosmological scenario in which the very early Universe experienced a transient epoch of matter domination due to the formation of a large population of primordial black holes (PBHs)
Limits on astrophysical antineutrinos with the KamLAND experiment
We report on a search for electron antineutrinos (ν̄e) from astrophysical sources in the neutrino energy range 8.3 to 30.8 MeV with the KamLAND detector. In an exposure of 6.72 kton-year of the
Constraining primordial black holes as dark matter using the global 21-cm signal with X-ray heating and excess radio background
Using the global 21-cm signal measurement by the EDGES collaboration, we derive constraints on the fraction of the dark matter that is in the form of primordial black holes (PBHs) with masses in the
Fog on the horizon: a new definition of the neutrino floor for direct dark matter searches
The neutrino floor is a theoretical lower limit on WIMP-like dark matter models that are discoverable in direct detection experiments. It is commonly interpreted as the point at which dark matter
Physics beyond the standard model with BlackHawk v2.0
We present the new version of the public code designed to compute the Hawking radiation of black holes, with both primary and hadronized spectra. This new version aims at opening an avenue toward

Primordial Black Holes as Dark Matter: Almost All or Almost Nothing
Primordial black holes (PBHs) are expected to accrete particle dark matter around them to form ultracompact minihalos (UCMHs), if the PBHs themselves are not most of the dark matter. We show that if
Novel constraints on mixed dark-matter scenarios of primordial black holes and WIMPs
We derive constraints on mixed dark-matter scenarios consisting of primordial black holes (PBHs) and weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs). In these scenarios, we expect a density spike of the
Leptophilic dark matter from the lepton asymmetry.
A model of weak scale dark matter where the thermal DM density is set by the lepton asymmetry due to the presence of higher dimension lepton violating operators is presented, giving a natural explanation for the observed cosmic ray electron and positron excesses, without resorting to a Sommerfeld enhancement.
CMB constraints on ultra-light primordial black holes with extended mass distributions
We examine the effects ultra-light primordial black holes (PBHs) have on the anisotropies of the cosmic microwave background (CMB). PBHs in the mass range of $10^{15}$ to $10^{17}$ g emit Hawking
Dirac and Majorana Neutrino Signatures of Primordial Black Holes [Slides]
We study Primordial Black Holes (PBHs) as sources of massive neutrinos via Hawking radiation. Emphasizing that black holes emit neutrino mass eigenstates, we describe quantitatively how the PBH
Novel Neutrino-Floor and Dark Matter Searches with Deformed Shell Model Calculations
Event detection rates for WIMP-nucleus interactions are calculated for  71Ga,  73Ge,  75As, and  127I (direct dark matter detectors). The nuclear structure form factors, which are rather independent
The 511 keV Excess and Primordial Black Holes in our Solar System
An excess of 511 keV photons has been detected from the central region of the Milky Way. It has been suggested that the positrons responsible for this signal might be produced through the Hawking
Did LIGO Detect Dark Matter?
It is considered that the black-hole (BH) binary detected by LIGO may be a signature of dark matter, and reasonable estimates span a range that overlaps the 2-53  Gpc^{-3} yr^{-1} rate estimated from GW150914, thus raising the possibility that LigO has detected PBH dark matter.
Primordial black holes and primordial nucleosynthesis: Effects of hadron injection from low mass holes
We investigate the influence of hadron injection from evaporating primordial black holes (PBHs) in the early stage of the primordial nucleosynthesis era (t = 10^{-3} - 10^4 sec). The emitted
