Abstract We present recent results taken at the LSM laboratory using the new spherical gaseous detector. It consists of a large spherical gas volume with a central electrode forming a radial electric field. A small spherical sensor located at the center is acting as a proportional amplification structure. Sub-keV energy threshold and versatility of the target (Ne, He, H) opens the way to push WIMP sensitivity down to 100 MeV. Results obtained with a low radioactivity detector and expected sensitivity will be presented.
