Speaker

Uwe Oberlack (R)

Description

The XENON Dark Matter program developed the dual-phase liquid xenon TPC into the world-leading detector type for direct WIMP Dark Matter searches with the experiments XENON10 and XENON100. This talk discusses recent results from XENON100, and reports on the status of its successor under construction, XENON1T. With a sensitive volume of about 2.2 tons, XENON1T aims at a sensitivity improvement of a factor 100 over its predecessor. As time permits, we will discuss some of the challenges to be met as we think ahead to the multi-ton scale.
