Description

Approaching its 8th year of operation, the Fermi Large Area Telescope (LAT) provides a window to study potential dark matter (DM) gamma-ray processes with unprecedented sensitivity. Lacking any significant detections, it has yielded important limits on the nature of the DM particle, even beginning to challenge the paradigm of thermally-produced weakly interacting massive particle (WIMP) DM. The state of LAT constraints on WIMP and other DM candidates will be reviewed, along with the most promising potential signals, observations of newly discovered DM targets, and projections for future LAT Collaboration analyses.
