Supersymmetric dark matter in light of recent LHC results

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Recent LHC results, most notably on the Higgs mass, have had a major impact on the family of constrained supersymmetric models. The combination of the lack of discovery of supersymmetric particles at the LHC and a Higgs mass of ∼ 125 GeV, pushes the supersymmetric mass scales up considerably making the prospects of the direct detection of dark matter in cryogenic experiments more remote. After first drawing some relations between minimal supergravity models and the CMSSM, I will discuss some of the implications of the LHC results on the CMSSM and the prospects for direct detection.
