Abstract. Modern gamma-ray telescopes are known to have poor energy and angular resolutions for Eγ ∼ 100 MeV. In the following decade, however, several new γ-telescopes are expected to be built. They will have unprecedented sensitivity in this particular energy range, which will open new opportunities for studying new exotic particles and interactions. Among the key questions that will be addressed are the mechanisms leading to the creation of Dark Matter and the nature of its constituents. In this contribution, we discuss a possible application of such new technologies for both detection of regions with enhanced Dark Matter concentration, and study of fundamental particles and their interactions.
