Differential rates of WIMP-nucleus scattering

Project description


Differential rates of WIMP-nucleus scattering in the standard halo model, for liquid xenon detectors.

Build Status DOI

Installation and usage

The package uses numericalunits (; all function inputs are expected to have proper units.


  • Spin-indendent and spin-dependent DM-nucleus scattering;
  • Elastic NR, bremsstrahlung, and Migdal effect detection mechanisms;
  • Time dependent observed dark matter speed distribution (annual modulation only, no daily modulation).
  • Under development: DM-electron scattering
