Monochromatic neutrino lines from sneutrino dark matter

Abstract : We investigate the possibility of observing monochromatic neutrino lines originating from annihilation of dark matter. We analyze several astrophysical sources with overdensities of dark matter that can amplify the signal. As a case study, we consider mixed left- and right-handed sneutrino dark matter. We demonstrate that in the physically viable region of the model, one can obtain a prominent monochromatic neutrino line. We propose a search strategy to observe these neutrino lines in future generations of neutrino telescopes that is especially sensitive to dwarf spheroidal galaxies. We demonstrate that the presence of massive black holes in the cores of dwarfs as well as of more massive galaxies substantially boosts any putative signal. In particular, dark matter in dwarf galaxies spiked by an intermediate massive black hole provides a powerful means of probing low-annihilation cross sections well below 10-26 cm3 s-1 that are otherwise inaccessible by any future direct detection or collider experiment.
