A bstractA rather minimal possibility is that dark matter consists of the gauge bosons of a spontaneously broken symmetry. Here we explore the possibility of detecting the gravitational waves produced by the phase transition associated with such breaking. Concretely, we focus on the scenario based on an SU(2)D group and argue that it is a case study for the sensitivity of future gravitational wave observatories to phase transitions associated with dark matter. This is because there are few… Expand
Gravitational waves from scale-invariant vector dark matter model: probing below the neutrino-floor
We study the gravitational waves (GWs) spectrum produced during the electroweak phase transition in a scale-invariant extension of the Standard Model (SM), enlarged by a dark $$ U(1)_{D} $$ U ( 1 ) DExpand
Gravitational waves and electroweak baryogenesis in a global study of the extended scalar singlet model
A bstractWe perform a global fit of the extended scalar singlet model with a fermionic dark matter (DM) candidate. Using the most up-to-date results from the Planck measured DM relic density, directExpand
Gravitational waves as a probe of left-right symmetry breaking
Left-right symmetry at high energy scales is a well-motivated extension of the Standard Model. In this paper we consider a typical minimal scenario in which it gets spontaneously broken by scalarExpand

A fresh look at the gravitational-wave signal from cosmological phase transitions
Many models of physics beyond the Standard Model predict a strong first-order phase transition (SFOPT) in the early Universe that leads to observable gravitational waves (GWs). In this paper, weExpand
Gravitational wave signatures from an extended inert doublet dark matter model
We consider a particle dark matter model by extending the scalar sector of the Standard Model by an additional SU(2) scalar doublet which is made "inert" (and stable) by imposing a discrete $Z_2$Expand

Dark Quark Nuggets.
"Dark quark nuggets", a lump of dark quark matter, can be produced in the early universe for a wide range of confining gauge theories and serve as a macroscopic dark matter candidate. The twoExpand


Gravitational Waves from a Dark Phase Transition.
The gravitational wave signal provides a unique test of the gravitational interactions of a dark sector, and the complementarity with conventional searches for new dark sectors is discussed, as well as symmetric and asymmetric composite dark matter scenarios. Expand
Gravitational Wave Signals of Electroweak Phase Transition Triggered by Dark Matter
We study in this work a scenario that the universe undergoes a two step phase transition with the first step happened to the dark matter sector and the second step being the transition between theExpand
Gravitational Waves from Phase Transitions at the Electroweak Scale and Beyond
If there was a first-order phase transition in the early universe, there should be an associated stochastic background of gravitational waves. In this paper, we point out that the characteristicExpand

Model for Thermal Relic Dark Matter of Strongly Interacting Massive Particles.
This work presents explicit classes of strongly coupled gauge theories of dynamical chiral symmetry breaking, where the pions play the role of dark matter, and gives an explicit relationship between the 3→2 annihilation rate and the 2→2 self-scattering rate, which alters predictions for structure formation.
