The XENON1T excess, theoretical interpretations and implications

Abstract

The XENON1T experiment aims at detecting the specific signatures of WIMP dark matter. The latest analysis showed, however, an unexpected excess of events with low recoil energy. Different potential explanations will be presented including new physics which would lead to the observed excess. Models of new physics have also implications for other experiments which will also be addressed.
