Impact of Cosmic-Ray Physics on Dark Matter Indirect Searches

Figure 2

Maximum flux compatible with AMS-02 data from evaporation of primordial black holes (green) and DM particle annihilation (blue and brown), compared with current and projected sensitivities from BESS, AMS, and GAPS experiments. Maximum flux for the expected astrophysical background is also shown: in black color the contribution from CR spallation processes with the interstellar medium and the subleading SNR-A and SNR-B ones. Bands bracket uncertainties from force-field approximated solar modulation and an event-by-event coalescence model. Figure 2 is reproduced from Herms et al.
