We report the first dark matter search results from XENON1T, a ∼2000-kg-target-mass dual-phase (liquid-gas) xenon time projection chamber in operation at the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso in Italy and the first ton-scale detector of this kind. The blinded search used 34.2 live days of data acquired between November 2016 and January 2017. Inside the (1042±12)-kg fiducial mass and in the [5,40]  keV_{nr} energy range of interest for weakly interacting massive particle (WIMP) dark matter…

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
First Results from the DEAP-3600 Dark Matter Search with Argon at SNOLAB.
TLDR
The first results of a direct dark matter search with the DEAP-3600 single-phase liquid argon (LAr) detector are reported, which results in the leading limit on weakly interacting massive particle (WIMP)-nucleon spin-independent cross section on argon.
XENON1T dark matter data analysis: Signal reconstruction, calibration, and event selection
The XENON1T experiment at the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso is the most sensitive direct detection experiment for dark matter in the form of weakly interacting particles (WIMPs) with masses
Latest results from the XENON1T experiment
The most successful class of direct detection of WIMPs with masses from few GeV/c2 to TeV/c2 have utilized Liquid Xenon time projection chambers (TPCs). The XENON project adopted dual phase TPCs
Sub-GeV Dark Matter Searches and Electric Field Studies for the LUX and LZ Experiments
The nature of dark matter (DM) remains a mystery since it has so far eluded detection in the laboratory. To that end, the Large Underground Xenon (LUX) experiment was built to directly observe the
Low-Mass Dark Matter Search with the DarkSide-50 Experiment.
We present the results of a search for dark matter weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs) in the mass range below 20  GeV/c^{2} using a target of low-radioactivity argon with a 6786.0 kg d
Results of a Search for Sub-GeV Dark Matter Using 2013 LUX Data.
TLDR
Constraints on spin-independent DM-nucleon scattering for DM particles with masses of 0.4-5  GeV/c^{2} using 1.4×10^{4}‬kg‬day of search exposure from the 2013 data from the Large Underground Xenon (LUX) experiment are reported.
Direct dark matter search by annual modulation with 2.7 years of XMASS-I data
An annual modulation signal due to the Earth orbiting around the Sun would be one of the strongest indications of the direct detection of dark matter. In 2016, we reported a search for dark matter by
Light Dark Matter Search with Ionization Signals in XENON1T.
TLDR
Constraints on light dark matter (DM) models using ionization signals in the XENON1T experiment are reported, and no DM or CEvNS detection may be claimed because the authors cannot model all of their backgrounds.
