Reconciling DAMA with Inelastic Neutralino Dark Matter; Predictions for Ge, Xe, I and W. (15'+5')
The inelastic dark matter model, in which WIMP-nucleus scatterings occur via 
transition to an excited WIMP state ~ 
100 keV above the ground state, modify the relative sensitivities of various dark 
matter direct detection 
experiments. In this model, the DAMA annual modulation signature can arise 
consistent with presently null results 
at CDMS-Soudan, XENON10, CRESST, and KIMS. The neutralino, in an R-
symmetric SUSY model, can provide a 
natural example of such a model. We review the status of the relative 
experiments and their sensitivities, and make 
predictions for upcoming experiments. In particular, we note that the model 
predicts highly suppressed signals at 
low energy, with most nuclear recoil events typically occuring between 20 to 45 
keV at xenon and iodine
