Search for charged excitations of dark matter by KamLAND-Zen experiment

研究成果: Conference article査読


There are many scenarios in which dark matter is a part of a multiplet with an electrically charged state. If WIMP dark matter is accompanied by a charged state separated by a small mass difference, it can form stable bound states with nuclei. The region of observable energy deposition via this process of bound state formation is O(1∼10 MeV). KamLAND-Zen is a large scintillator detector designed for neutrino-less double-beta decay search. This detector is also useful to detect dark matter bound state formations with nuclei. The result from the KamLAND-Zen 400 dataset is reported.
