Feasibility Study of a Superheated Superconducting Granule Detector for Cold Dark Matter Search


The presented results are part of a feasibility study of a Superheated Supercon-ducting Granule (SSG) device for weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs) detection. The sensitivity of SSG to nuclear recoils has been explored irradiating SSG detectors with a 70MeV neutron beam proving that energy thresholds of ∼1keV can be reached in 30µm Zn and 17µm Sn… (More)
