Pinning down inelastic dark matter in the Sun and in direct detection

Article, Preprint English OPEN
Blennow, Mattias; Clementz, Stefan; Herrero-Garcia, Juan;

We study the solar capture rate of inelastic dark matter with endothermic and/or exothermic interactions. By assuming that an inelastic dark matter signal will be observed in next generation direct detection experiments we can set a lower bound on the capture rate that ... View more
