Description

CRESST is a direct dark matter detection experiment operating $CaWO_4$ target crystals as particle detectors at cryogenic temperatures. The third generation of CRESST detectors features nuclear recoil energy thresholds below $100eV$ combined with a sophisticated veto system for holder and surface related backgrounds in addition to the standard scintillation light based event-by-event particle discrimination technique. This allows to push the low-mass frontier for direct dark matter detection well into the sub-$GeV/c^2$ range.

The poster will focus on new results from the last data taking campaign obtained with an updated analysis scheme and a down to threshold analysis.
