Poster Dark Matter Detection Poster Session


Jay Hyun Jo (Yale University)


DM-Ice is a phased experimental program using low-background NaI(Tl) crystals aimed at unambiguously testing the claim of dark matter detection by the DAMA experiments. DM-Ice17, consisting of 17 kg of NaI(Tl), has been continuously operating at a depth of 2457 m in the South Pole ice for over five years, demonstrating the feasibility of a low-background experiment in the Antarctic ice. Studies of cosmogenic activation, muon phosphorescence, and the low-energy spectrum based on the primary physics run of DM-Ice17 will be presented. We will discuss the plan and sensitivity of a new joint physics run together with KIMS operating upgraded detectors at the Yangyang Underground Laboratory.
