A Dark Matter Interpretation of Excesses in Multiple Direct Detection Experiments

Kavli Affiliate: Noah Kurinsky | First 5 Authors: , , , , | Summary: We present a novel unifying interpretation of excess event rates observed in several dark matter direct-detection experiments that utilize single-electron threshold semiconductor detectors. Despite their different locations, exposures, readout techniques, detector composition, and operating depths, these experiments all observe statistically significant […]
