New limits on WIMP interactions from the SIMPLE dark matter search
The SIMPLE project uses superheated C2ClF5 liquid detectors to search for particle dark matter candidates. We report the results of the first stage exposure (14.1 kgd) of its latest two-stage, Phase
Dark Matter Search Results from the PICO-2L C3F8 Bubble Chamber.
These data provide the most sensitive direct detection constraints on WIMP-proton spin-dependent scattering to date, with significant sensitivity at low W IMP masses for spin-independent WIMp-nucleon scattering.
Dark matter search with PICASSO
PICASSO at SNOLAB searches primarily for spin-dependent WIMP interactions on 19F using the superheated droplet technique. This technique is based on the bubble chamber principle, where phase
Nano-booms — A new class of WIMP detectors
Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs) can constitute a large fraction of the dark matter (DM) in the universe. The importance of coherent scattering and detection of annual modulation effect
The DarkSide Multiton Detector for the Direct Dark Matter Search
Although the existence of dark matter is supported by many evidences, based on astrophysical measurements, its nature is still completely unknown. One major candidate is represented by weakly
Search for dark matter and large extra dimensions in monojet events in pp collisions at $ \sqrt {s} = {7} $ TeV
A bstractA search has been made for events containing an energetic jet and an imbalance in transverse momentum using a data sample of pp collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV. This signature


Limits on the spin-dependent WIMP-nucleon cross sections from the first science run of the ZEPLIN-III experiment.
Analysis of data from the first science run of ZEPLIN-III, a two-phase xenon experiment searching for galactic dark matter weakly interacting massive particles based at the Boulby mine, indicates that the sensitivity of xenon targets to the spin-dependent WIMP-proton interaction could be much lower than implied by previous calculations.
First results from the XENON10 dark matter experiment at the Gran Sasso National Laboratory.
A blind analysis of 58.6 live days of data excludes previously unexplored parameter space, setting a new 90% C.L. upper limit for the WIMP-nucleon spin-independent cross section of 8.8x10(-44) cm2 for a W IMP mass of 100 GeV/c2, which further constrains predictions of supersymmetric models.
Spin-Dependent WIMP Limits from a Bubble Chamber
An ultraclean, room-temperature bubble chamber containing 1.5 kilograms of superheated CF3I, a target maximally sensitive to spin-dependent and -independent weakly interacting massive particle (WIMP) couplings, showed extreme intrinsic insensitivity to the backgrounds that commonly limit direct searches for dark matter.
Search for weakly interacting massive particles with the first five-tower data from the cryogenic dark matter search at the soudan underground laboratory.
A blind analysis of data taken between October 2006 and July 2007 sets an upper limit on the weakly interacting massive particle (WIMP) nucleon spin-independent cross section that achieves the best sensitivity for dark matter WIMPs with masses above 44 GeV/c;{2}, and significantly restricts the parameter space for some favored supersymmetric models.

Heavy Superheated Droplet Detectors as a Probe of Spin-independent WIMP Dark Matter Existence
At present, application of Superheated Droplet Detectors (SDDs) in WIMP dark matter searches has been limited to the spin-dependent sector, owing to the general use of fluorinated refrigerants which
Nuclear Spin in Direct Dark Matter Search
The Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs) are among the main candidates for the relic dark matter (DM). The idea of the direct DM detection relies on elastic in-dependent (SD) and
