A ug 2 00 5 Direct dark matter detection by observing electrons produced in neutralino - nucleus collisions


Exotic dark matter and dark energy together seem to dominate in the Universe. Supersymmetry naturally provides a candidate for the dark matter constituents via the lightest supersymmetric particle (LSP). The most important process for directly detecting dark matter is the LSP-nucleus elastic scattering by measuring the energy of the recoiling nucleus. In… (More)
