Dark matter candidate with well-defined mass and couplings Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • © 2017 World Scientific Publishing Company. We propose a Higgs-related but spin-1/2 dark matter candidate with a mass that is comparable to that of the Higgs. This particle is a weakly interacting massive particle (WIMP) with an R-parity of -1, but it can be distinguished from a neutralino by its unconventional couplings to W and Z bosons. Other neutral and charged spin-1/2 particles of a new kind are also predicted at higher energy.
