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](](

Installation and usage
- `pip install wimprates`
- [See this basic example for 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
