Shedding light on dark matter and neutrino interactions from cosmology
Journal of Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics
In ΛCDM cosmology, Dark Matter (DM) and neutrinos are assumed to be non- interacting. However, it is possible to have scenarios, where DM-neutrino interaction may be present, leading to scattering of DM with neutrinos and annihilation of DM into neutrinos. We investigate the viability of such scenarios in the light of cosmological data by making use of the Planck 2018 dataset (high-l TT+TE+EE, low-l TT, low-l EE) and constrain these processes in the light of the same. We also discuss a viable particle DM model where DM-neutrino interaction is present, and map the constraints obtained to the parameter space of the model.
