Input from the DARWIN collaboration to the European Strategy for Particle Physics

Dark matter and dark sector (accelerator and non-accelerator dark matter, dark photons, hidden sector, axions)


The DARWIN collaboration (www.darwin-observatory.org) is planning to build the “ultimate” underground-based direct detection dark matter detector, with a dark matter sensitivity limited only by irreducible neutrino backgrounds. The core of the detector will have a 40 ton liquid xenon target instrumented as a dual-phase time projection chamber. The large xenon target, the exquisitely low radioactive backgrounds and the low energy threshold will allow a diversification of the physics program beyond purely the search for dark matter particles: DARWIN will be a true low-background, low-threshold astroparticle physics observatory.
