Departmental Colloquium


Low-temperature direct dark matter searches

Philippe Di Stefano
Institut de Physique Nucléaire de Lyon

Time
 
Thu. August 8, 2002     1:30 PM     Theatre A

Abstract
 
For the past fifteen years, astroparticle experiments have been searching for the hypothetical and elusive WIMPs that could solve the dark matter problem first raised in 1933. Small cryogenic detectors with efficient background rejection, thanks to a simultaneous measurement of phonons and charge, now surpass longer established and heavier direct dark matter searches. I will review the experiments, results and prospects, with emphasis on the recent progress of the EDELWEISS collaboration.
