Dark matter, Dipolar dark matter, WIMP, Relic density


We are interested in the purpose of a dipolar fermionic particle as a viable candidate of Dark Matter (DDM). Then, we study the annihilation of dark matter into photons, considering it as a neutral particle with non-vanishing magnetic (M) and electric (D) dipolar moments. The total annihilation cross section σ(χchi bar → γgamma bar) is computed by starting from a general form of coupling χchi barγ in a framework beyond to Standard Model (BSM). We found that candidates with O(mχ )∽102GeV, D≈10−16 e cm are required in order to satisfy the current cosmic relic density.
