  • White dwarfs (WDs) are the most promising captors of dark matter (DM) particles in the crests that areexpected tobuildupinthecores of dense stellarclusters. TheDMparticles could reach sufficient densities in WD cores to liberate energy through self-annihilation. The extinction associated with our Galactic Centre makes it impossible to detect the potential-associated luminosities, contrary to smaller stellar systems which are close enough to us and not heavily extincted, such as -Cen.
