[DM031] ANTARES/IceCube Combined Galactic Center Analysis


  • Juan Antonio AGUILAR SÁNCHEZ

Primary authors


Neutrino telescopes have searched for self-annihilating dark matter in the Galactic halo and placed the most stringent limits on the dark matter self-annihilation cross section $ angle sigma v langle$ for masses above 30 TeV. To date the most stringent limit was obtained by the ANTARES neutrino telescope looking at the Galactic Center region and is closely followed by the limits from the IceCube experiment. In this poster the results of a first combined search for dark matter in the Milky Way using the data of both these experiments is presented. From the IceCube experiment the 79-string data sample taken from 2010 to 2011 was used, while from ANTARES the data sample collected from 2007 to 2012 was taken using single--line events only. The analysis considered dark matter with particle masses between 50 and 100 GeV and a variety of different dark matter Halo models and annihilation channels.
