C2 – Dark Matter Searches



Project Leaders

Marcus Brüggen (e-mail | group homepage)

Dieter Horns (e-mail | group homepage)


Abstract

The aim of the project is the indirect search for dark matter with the H.E.S.S. (Phase I+II) gamma-ray Cherenkov telescopes above 20 GeV and with X-ray telescopes (XMM-Newton, Chandra, eROSITA) as well as the direct search for heavy, sub-dominant dark matter with the IceCube neutrino telescope. Candidates searched for are described in the framework of super-symmetric models and other formulations of grand unified theories.
