Description

I perform a study of the DAMA annual modulation data in the context of inelastic dark matter. I find that inelastic dark matter with mass m > 15 GeV is excluded at high significance by the combination of DAMA spectral information and results from other direct detection experiments. However, at smaller m, inelastic dark matter constitutes a possible solution to the DAMA puzzle.
