The EDELWEISS collaboration has performed a direct search for WIMP dark matter using a 320 g heat-and-ionization cryogenic Ge detector operated in a low-background environment in the Laboratoire Souterrain de Modane. No nuclear recoils are observed in the fiducial volume in the 30-200 keV energy range during an effective exposure of 4.53 kg·days. Limits for(More)
The EDELWEISS experiment has improved its sensitivity for the direct search for WIMP dark matter. In the recoil energy range relevant for WIMP masses below 10 TeV/c, no nuclear recoils were observed in the fiducial volume of a heat-and-ionization cryogenic Ge detector operated in the lowbackground environment of the Laboratoire Souterrain de Modane in the(More)
The EDELWEISS Dark Matter search uses low-temperature Ge detectors with heat and ionisation read-out to identify nuclear recoils induced by elastic collisions with WIMPs from the galactic halo. Results from the operation of 70 g and 320 g Ge detectors in the low-background environment of the Modane Underground Laboratory (LSM) are presented.
The electronic noise of fast preampliiers associated to APDs readout of PbWO 4 crystal has been investigated in a beam test. An electronic noise value of 25 MeV has been achieved whereas the temperature was 27 1 o C. We have also measured the electronic noise of serial connection of two high capacitance Hamamatsu APDs and we have reached a noise of 30 MeV(More)

In the framework of its search for new heavy, fast, and radiation-hard scintillators for calorimetry at future colliders, the Crystal Clear Collaboration performed a systematic investigation of the properties and of the scintillation and radiation damage mechanisms of CeF3 monocrystals. Many samples of various dimensions up to 3×3×28cm3 were produced by(More)
