O ct 2 00 3 Detecting the WIMP-wind via spin-dependent interactions

Revealing the nature of dark matter is one of the most interesting tasks in astrophysics. Measuring the distribution of recoil angles is said to be one of the most reliable methods to detect a positive signature of dark matter. We focused on measurements via spin-dependent interactions, and studied the feasibility with carbon tetrafluoride(CF4) gas, while… (More)
