Ring-like features in directional dark matter detection

Abstract [en]

We discuss a novel dark matter signature relevant for directional detection of Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs). For heavy enough WIMPs and low enough recoil energies, the maximum of the recoil rate is not in the direction of the average WIMP arrival direction but in a ring around it at an angular radius that increases with the WIMP mass and can approach 90 degrees at very low energies. The ring is easier to detect for smaller WIMP velocity dispersion and larger average WIMP velocities relative to the detector. In principle the ring could be used as an additional indication of the WIMP mass range.
