Constraints from electroweak bremsstrahlung and prospects for gamma ray detectionMathias Garny1, Alejandro Ibarra2, and •Stefan Vogl21DESY — 2TUM

It is well known that the annihilation of Majorana dark matter particles into light leptons can be significantly enhanced by electromagnetic bremsstrahlung processes, which give rise to potentially observable signal in gamma-rays. Due to the gauge invariance, this mechanism inevitably leads to electroweak bremsstrahlung processes, which in turn lead to the production of antiprotons even when the leading order hadronic annihilation channels are forbidden. We investigate the constraints on the electroweak bremsstrahlung processes from the present measurements of the antiproton-to-proton fraction and we discuss the prospects to observe a gamma-signal in view of the antiproton constraints.
