Description

The XENON100 experiment is a direct dark matter search experiment using a dual-phase xenon time projection chamber situated at the Laborati Nazionali de Gran Sasso (LNGS) underground laboratory. Due to its ultra-low background level it has been able to set the most stringent excluding level for the cross-section of scattering of weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs) off nucleons. In this talk new results on spin-dependent WIMP-nucleon scattering interactions, as well as precise studies of the low energy response to nuclear recoils will be presented. In addition the status of the ongoing measurements and the next generation XENON1T detector will be briefly described.
