3 11 October 2004BerkeleyFeng 3 Dark Matter Tremendous recent progress:  DM = 0.23 ± 0.04 But…we have no idea what it is Precise, unambiguous evidence for new particle physics

4 11 October 2004BerkeleyFeng 4 SuperWIMPs – New DM Candidate Why should we care? We already have axions, warm gravitinos, neutralinos, Kaluza-Klein particles, Q balls, wimpzillas, branons, self-interacting particles, self-annihilating particles,… SuperWIMPs have all the virtues of neutralinos… Well-motivated stable particle Naturally obtains the correct relic density …and more Rich cosmology, spectacular collider signals There is already a signal

5 11 October 2004BerkeleyFeng 5 SuperWIMPs: The Basic Idea G̃ not LSP Assumption of most of literature SM LSP G̃G̃ G̃ LSP Completely different cosmology and phenomenology SM NLSP G̃G̃ Supergravity gravitinos: mass ~ M W, couplings ~ M W /M *

6 11 October 2004BerkeleyFeng 6 Assume G̃ LSP, WIMP NLSP WIMPs freeze out as usual Gravitinos are dark matter now: they are superWIMPs, superweakly interacting massive particles WIMP ≈G̃G̃ But at t ~ M * 2 /M W 3 ~ year, WIMPs decay to gravitinos

7 11 October 2004BerkeleyFeng 7 SuperWIMP Virtues Well motivated stable particle. Present in –supersymmetry (supergravity with R-parity conservation) –Extra dimensions (universal extra dimensions with KK- parity conservation) Completely generic: present in “½” of parameter space Naturally obtains the correct relic density:  G̃ = (m G̃ /m NLSP )  NLSP

8 11 October 2004BerkeleyFeng 8 Other Mechanisms Gravitinos are the original SUSY dark matter Old ideas: Khlopov, Linde (1984) Moroi, Murayama, Yamaguchi (1993) Bolz, Buchmuller, Plumacher (1998) … Gravitinos have thermal relic density For DM, require a new, fine-tuned energy scale Weak scale gravitinos diluted by inflation, regenerated in reheating  G ̃ < 1  T RH < GeV For DM, require a new, fine-tuned energy scale Pagels, Primack (1982) Weinberg (1982) Krauss (1983) Nanopoulos, Olive, Srednicki (1983)

9 11 October 2004BerkeleyFeng 9 SuperWIMP Signals Most likely possibilities: Can’t both be right – in fact both are wrong! A)Signals too strong; scenario is completely excluded B) Signals too weak; scenario is possible, but completely untestable

10 11 October 2004BerkeleyFeng 10 SuperWIMP Signals SuperWIMPs escape all conventional DM searches But late decays  ̃ →  G̃,  ̃ →  G̃ , …, have cosmological consequences Assuming  G̃ =  DM, signals determined by 2 parameters: m G̃, m NLSP Lifetime Energy release  i =  i B i Y NLSP i = EM, had Y NLSP = n NLSP / n  BG

11 11 October 2004BerkeleyFeng 11 Big Bang Nucleosynthesis Late decays may modify light element abundances Fields, Sarkar, PDG (2002) After WMAP  D =  CMB Independent 7 Li measurements are all low by factor of 3: 7 Li is now a serious problem Jedamzik (2004)

12 11 October 2004BerkeleyFeng 12 NLSP = WIMP  Energy release is dominantly EM (even mesons decay first) EM energy quickly thermalized, so BBN constrains ( ,  EM ) BBN constraints weak for early decays: hard  e  thermalized in hot universe BBN EM Constraints Cyburt, Ellis, Fields, Olive (2002) Best fit reduces 7 Li:

13 11 October 2004BerkeleyFeng 13 Consider  ̃ → G̃  (others similar) Grid: Predictions for m G̃ = 100 GeV – 3 TeV (top to bottom)  m = 600 GeV – 100 GeV (left to right) Some parameter space excluded, but much survives BBN EM Predictions Feng, Rajaraman, Takayama (2003) SuperWIMP DM naturally explains 7 Li !

14 11 October 2004BerkeleyFeng 14 BBN Hadronic Constraints BBN constraints on hadronic energy release are severe. Jedamzik (2004) Kawasaki, Kohri, Moroi (2004) For neutralino NLSPs, hadrons from destroy BBN. Possible ways out: –Kinematic suppression? No,  m < m Z  BBN EM violated. –Dynamical suppression?  =  ̃ ok, but unmotivated. For sleptons, cannot neglect subleading decays: Dimopoulos, Esmailzadeh, Hall, Starkman (1988) Reno, Seckel (1988)

15 11 October 2004BerkeleyFeng 15 BBN Hadronic Predictions Feng, Su, Takayama (2004) Despite B had ~ – 10 -3, hadronic constraints are leading for  ~ 10 5 – 10 6, must be included

16 11 October 2004BerkeleyFeng 16 Late decays may also distort the CMB spectrum For 10 5 s <  < 10 7 s, get “  distortions”:  =0: Planckian spectrum  0: Bose-Einstein spectrum Hu, Silk (1993) Current bound: |  | < 9 x Future (DIMES): |  | ~ 2 x Cosmic Microwave Background Feng, Rajaraman, Takayama (2003)

17 11 October 2004BerkeleyFeng 17 Feng, Su, Takayama (2004) [ If  G̃ = (m G̃ /m NLSP )  NLSP, high masses excluded ] Shaded regions excluded SUSY Spectrum (  G̃ =  DM )

18 11 October 2004BerkeleyFeng 18 Model Implications We’ve been missing half of parameter space. For example, mSUGRA should have 6 parameters: { m 0, M 1/2, A 0, tan , sgn(  ), m 3/2 } G̃ not LSP  LSP > 0.23 excluded  LSP ok  ̃ LSP excluded G̃ LSP  NLSP > 0.23 ok  NLSP excluded  ̃ NLSP ok Feng, Matchev, Wilczek (2000)

19 11 October 2004BerkeleyFeng 19 Collider Physics Each SUSY event produces 2 metastable sleptons Spectacular signature: highly-ionizing charged tracks Current bound (LEP): m l̃ > 99 GeV Tevatron Run II reach: m l̃ ~ 180 GeV for 10 fb -1 LHC reach: m l̃ ~ 700 GeV for 100 fb -1 Hoffman, Stuart et al. (1997) Acosta (2002) … Drees, Tata (1990) Goity, Kossler, Sher (1993) Feng, Moroi (1996)

20 11 October 2004BerkeleyFeng 20 Slepton Trapping Cosmological constraints  –Slepton NLSP –  NLSP < year Sleptons can be trapped and moved to a quiet environment to study their decays Crucial question: how many can be trapped by a reasonably sized trap in a reasonable time? Slepton trap Reservoir

21 11 October 2004BerkeleyFeng 21 Trap Optimization To optimize trap shape and placement: Consider parts of spherical shells centered on cos  = 0 and placed against detector Fix volume V (ktons) Vary (  cos ,  ) d r in = 10 m, 10 mwe   (cos  ) IP

22 11 October 2004BerkeleyFeng 22 Slepton Range Ionization energy loss described by Bethe-Bloch equation: Use “continuous slowing down approximation” down to  = 0.05 m l̃ = 219 GeV water Pb

23 11 October 2004BerkeleyFeng 23 Model Framework Results depend heavily on the entire SUSY spectrum Consider mSUGRA with m 0 =A 0 =0, tan  = 10,  >0 M 1/2 = 300, 400,…, 900 GeV

24 11 October 2004BerkeleyFeng 24 Large Hadron Collider M 1/2 = 600 GeV m l̃ = 219 GeV L = 100 fb -1 /yr Of the sleptons produced, O(1)% are caught in 10 kton trap 10 to 10 4 trapped sleptons in 10 kton trap

25 11 October 2004BerkeleyFeng 25 International Linear Collider By tuning the beam energy, 75% are caught in 10 kton trap 10 3 trapped sleptons L = 300 fb -1 /yr

26 11 October 2004BerkeleyFeng 26 ILC Other nearby superpartners  no need to tune E beam L = 300 fb -1 /yr

27 11 October 2004BerkeleyFeng 27 What we learn from slepton decays Recall: Measurement of   m G̃   G̃. SuperWIMP contribution to dark matter  F. Supersymmetry breaking scale  BBN in the lab Measurement of  and E l  m G̃ and M *  Precise test of supergravity: gravitino is graviton partner  Measurement of G Newton on fundamental particle scale  Probes gravitational interaction in particle experiment
