Talk 09. Dark Matter Detection Dark Matter Detection


Paolo Agnes (University of Houston (US))


The DarkSide-50 direct-detection dark matter experiment is a
dual-phase argon time projection chamber operating at Laboratori
Nazionali del Gran Sasso (LNGS) of INFN. It is sensitive to WIMPs with
masses above 50 GeV/$c^2$ by exploiting the exceptional pulse shape
discrimination of the scintillation signal in LAr and to lower masses
WIMPs by an analysis that uses solely the ionisation signal for which
DarkSide-50 is fully efficient starting from 0.1 keVee. The latest
results derived utilizing the full sample acquired by the experiment
will be presented together with the calibration methods used in
particular for the low mass WIMP searches.
