Exploring the mirror matter interpretation of the DAMA experiment: Has the
dark matter problem been solved?

Authors: R.Foot
Comments: About 10 pages

The self consistency between the impressive DAMA annual modulation signal
and the measured recoil energy spectrum is identified as an important test
for dark matter candidates. Mirror matter-type dark matter passes this
test while other dark matter candidates, including standard WIMPs and
mini-electric charged particle dark matter, fail. We argue that the unique
properties of mirror matter-type dark matter seem to be just those
required to fully explain the data, suggesting that the dark matter
problem has finally been solved.
