  • The Spherical gaseous detector (or Spherical Proportional Counter, SPC) has a broad range of applications. In this work, we will focus on the light WIMP Dark Matter particle search, that is, below a few GeV. The NEWS-G collaboration operates a 60 cm diameter detector at Modane underground laboratory (LSM). Running the detector at 3 bars of Neon gas, some competitive limits have been set down to 0.5 GeV WIMP mass thanks to an energy threshold of around 100 eV. To reach better performances, the… CONTINUE READING
