1307.5740 (Zhao-Huan Yu et al.)

Detecting interactions between dark matter and photons at high energy
$e^+e^-$ colliders

Zhao-Huan Yu, Qi-Shu Yan, Peng-Fei Yin
We investigate the sensitivity to the effective operators describing interactions between dark matter particles and photons at future high energy $e^+e^-$ colliders via the $\gamma+ \slashed{E}$ channel. Such operators could be useful to interpret the potential gamma-ray line signature observed by the Fermi-LAT. We find that these operators can be further tested at $e^+ e^-$ colliders by using either unpolarized or polarized beams. We also derive a general unitarity condition for $2 \to n$ processes and apply it to the dark matter production process $e^+e^-\to\chi\chi\gamma$.
