Status and prospect of China Jinping Underground Laboratory
China Jinping underground laboratory (CJPL) is located in the Jinping Mountain, Sichuan Province, southwest China, with a rock overburden of about 2400m, and it is currently the deepest underground
Study of background from accidental coincidence signals in the PandaX-II experiment
The PandaX-II experiment employed a 580kg liquid xenon detector to search for the interactions between dark matter particles and the target xenon atoms. The accidental coincidences of isolated

Low radioactive material screening and background control for the PandaX-4T experiment
Abstract PandaX-4T is a ton-scale dark matter direct detection experiment using a dual-phase TPC technique at the China Jinping Underground Laboratory. Various ultra-low background technologies have
Heavy long-lived coannihilation partner from inelastic Dark Matter model and its signatures at the LHC
Abstract The coannihilation mechanism is a well-motivated alternative to the simple thermal freeze-out mechanism, where the dark matter relic density can be obtained through the coannihilation with
Cancellation mechanism of dark matter direct detection in Higgs-portal and vector-portal models
We present two alternative proofs for the cancellation mechanism in the U(1) symmetric pseudo-Nambu-Goldstone-Boson Dark Matter (pNGB DM) model. They help us to have a better understanding of the
Revisiting the fermionic dark matter absorption on electron target
Abstract We perform a systematic study of the fermionic DM absorption interactions on electron target in the context of effective field theory. The fermionic DM absorption is not just sensitive to


Status and prospects of a deep underground laboratory in China
An excellent candidate location for a deep underground laboratory with more than 2500 m of rock overburden has been identified at Sichuan Province in China. It can be accessed through a road tunnel
An improved evaluation of the neutron background in the PandaX-II experiment
In dark matter direct detection experiments, neutron is a serious source of background, which can mimic the dark matter-nucleus scattering signals. In this paper, we present an improved evaluation of
Projected WIMP sensitivity of the XENONnT dark matter experiment
XENONnT is a dark matter direct detection experiment, utilizing 5.9 t of instrumented liquid xenon, located at the INFN Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso. In this work, we predict the experimental
A Review of Basic Energy Reconstruction Techniques in Liquid Xenon and Argon Detectors for Dark Matter and Neutrino Physics Using NEST
Detectors based upon the noble elements, especially liquid xenon as well as liquid argon, as both single- and dual-phase types, require reconstruction of the energies of interacting particles, both

This document introduces a stable, well tested Python implementation of the affine-invariant ensemble sampler for Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) proposed by Goodman & Weare and describes the algorithm and the details of the implementation.
Search for dark matter at colliders
Among the numerous proposals to explain the nature of dark matter, there is the weakly interacting massive particle (WIMP) scenario, which is based on a simple assumption that dark matter was in
