We present results of searches for dark matter particles in ATLAS and CMS experiments at the LHC. Searches in hadron colliders focus on final states consisting of direct production of a pair of dark matter particles, which escape direct detection. Candidate events are selected as those having an initial-state radiation of a SM particle, such as a gluon or photon. These searches result in final...

There is overwhelming evidence that non-baryonic dark matter constitutes ~27% of the energy density of the universe. Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs) are promising dark matter candidates that may produce gamma rays via annihilation or decay detectable by the Fermi Large Area Telescope (Fermi LAT). A detection of WIMPs would also indicate the existence of physics beyond the...

The cubic-kilometer sized IceCube neutrino observatory, constructed in the glacial ice at the South Pole, offers new opportunities for neutrino physics with its in-fill array "DeepCore". IceCube searches indirectly for dark matter via neutrinos from dark matter self-annihilations and has a high discovery potential through striking signatures. We report on the latest results from searches for...

Super-Kamiokande can search for the dark matter by detecting neutrinos and muons which are produced by WIMP pair annihilations occur inside the Sun. Huge gravity and hydrogen rich composition of the Sun combined with high sensitivity of Super-Kamiokande for low energy(few GeV) neutrinos allow us to reach good sensitivity to light(few GeV to few 10 GeV) WIMP dark matter, especially for...

The High Altitude Water Cherenkov (HAWC) observatory is a wide field-of-view detector sensitive to 100 GeV - 100 TeV gamma rays and cosmic rays. Located at an elevation of 4100 m on the Sierra Negra mountain in Mexico, HAWC observes extensive air showers from gamma and cosmic rays with an array of water tanks which produce Cherenkov light in the presence of air showers. With a field-of-view...
