Description

NEWAGE is a direction-sensitive direct dark matter search experiment. NEWAGE uses a micro-TPC with a detection volume of 30 by 30 by 41 cm^3 read by one of the MPGD variations, \mu-PIC. We have been performing underground measurement since 2013 with a new detector NEWAGE-0.3b’. The results from 430 days' measurement will be presented. In order to improve the sensitivities, we are developing a low-radioactive \mu-PIC and a negative-ion TPC and its readout electronics. These recent activities to improve the sensitivity will also be reported.
