Implications of XENON100 and LHC results for Dark Matter models

By Marco Farina, Mario Kadastik, Martti Raidal, Duccio Pappadopulo, Joosep Pata and Alessandro Strumia


We perform a fit to the recent Xenon100 data and study its implications for Dark Matter scenarios. We find that Inelastic Dark Matter is disfavoured as an explana- tion to the DAMA/LIBRA annual modulation signal. Concerning the scalar singlet DM model, we find that the Xenon100 data disfavors its constrained limit. We study the CMSSM as well as the low scale phenomenological MSSM taking into account latest Tevatron and LHC data (1.1/fb) about sparticles and Bs \rightarrow {\mu}{\mu}. After the EPS 2011 conference, LHC excludes the "Higgs-resonance" region of DM freeze-out and Xenon100 disfavors the "well-tempered" bino/higgsino, realized in the "focus-point" region of the CMSSM parameter space. The preferred region shifts to heavier sparticles, higher fine-tuning, higher tan {\beta} and the quality of the fit deteriorates.Comment: v4: addendum included at the light of the Dark Matter and Higgs data presented during july 2012 by the Xenon100, ATLAS and CMS collaboration
