Isospin-Violating Dark Matter Benchmarks for Snowmass 2013    [PDF]

Jonathan L. Feng, Jason Kumar, Danny Marfatia, David Sanford
Isospin-violating dark matter (IVDM) generalizes the standard spin-independent scattering parameter space by introducing one additional parameter, the neutron-to-proton coupling ratio f_n/f_p. In IVDM the implications of direct detection experiments can be altered significantly. We review the motivations for considering IVDM and present benchmark models that illustrate some of the qualitatively different possibilities. IVDM strongly motivates the use of a variety of target nuclei in direct detection experiments.
