Abstract [en]

It has been suggested that the Milky Way dark matter halo consists of Weakly Interactive Massive Particles (WIMPs) that scatter and accumulate in the center of gravitational wells like the Sun. In certain models this provides a source of high energy neutrinos originating in the centre of the Sun that may be detected by a neutrino detector on the Earth. We describe a search for Solar WIMP dark matter using AMANDA/IceCube data from 2008 with the 40-string IceCube detector configuration. We present combined limits using data acquired from 2001-2008 on the WIMP induced muon flux from the Sun for dark matter particle masses between 50 and 5000 GeV. We test WIMP model hypotheses of the lightest MSSM neutralino and the lightest Kaluza-Klein particle.
