AbstractThe heavy fourth-generation Majorana neutrino can be stable and contribute to a small fraction of the relic density of dark matter (DM) in the Universe. Because of its strong coupling to the standard model particles, it can be probed by the current direct and indirect DM detection experiments even it is a subdominant component of the whole halo DM. Assuming that it contributes to the same fraction of the local halo DM density as that of the DM relic density in the Universe, we show that the current Xenon100 data constrain the mass of the stable Majorana neutrino to be greater than the mass of the top quark. In the mass range from 200 GeV to a few hundred GeV, the effective spin-independent cross section for the neutrino elastic-scattering off nucleon is insensitive to the neutrino mass and mixing, and is predicted to be similar to 1.5 X 10(-44) cm(2), which can be reached by the direct DM detection experiments soon. In the same mass region the predicted effective spin-dependent cross section for the heavy neutrino scattering off proton is in the range of 2 X 10(-40) cm(2) similar to 2 X 10(-39) cm(2), which is within the reach of the ongoing DM indirect search experiments such as IceCube. We demonstrate such properties of the heavy neutrino DM in a fourth-generation model with the stability of the fourth Majorana neutrino protected by an additional generation-dependent U(1) gauge symmetry.
