Title:Advances and challenges in dark matter searches with noble liquids
Room: 185
Abstract: Advances and challenges in dark matter searches with noble liquids
The presence of a new form of matter known as “dark matter” provides strong empirical evidence for physics beyond the standard model. The physical nature of dark matter has not yet been discovered, but many benchmark models are within the reach of present and future direct detection experiments that seek to detect the signals of dark matter particles interacting with the terrestrial detector. Among them, dual phase noble liquid searches have shown impressive increase in sensitivity over the past decade. They are presently leading the field placing the most stringent limits on scattering rate of dark matter particles, in the form of weakly interacting massive particles, over most of the interesting parameter space.
After short introduction to direct detection technique and the dual phase noble liquid detectors, I will present the status of the XENON and DarkSide search programs and discuss the advances and challenges for future large scale detectors along with their physics reach.
