We report results of a search for weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPS) with the silicon detectors of the CDMS II experiment. This blind analysis of 140.2 kg day of data taken between July 2007 and September 2008 revealed three WIMP-candidate events with a surface-event background estimate of 0.41(-0.08)(+0.20)(stat)(-0.24)(+0.28)(syst). Other known backgrounds from neutrons and 206Pb are limited to <0.13 and <0.08 events at the 90% confidence level, respectively. The exposure of this… Expand
Constraints on low-mass WIMPs from the EDELWEISS-III dark matter search
We present the results of a search for elastic scattering from galactic dark matter in the form of Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs) in the 4-30 GeV/$c^2$ mass range. We make use of a 582Expand
Improved WIMP-search reach of the CDMS II germanium data.
CDMS II data from the five-tower runs at the Soudan Underground Laboratory were reprocessed with an improved charge-pulse fitting algorithm. Two new analysis techniques to reject surface-eventExpand
Search for low-mass WIMPs in a 0.6 kg day exposure of the DAMIC experiment at SNOLAB
We present results of a dark matter search performed with a 0.6 kg d exposure of the DAMIC experiment at the SNOLAB underground laboratory. We measure the energy spectrum of ionization events in theExpand
Systematics of Low Threshold Modulation Searches in DMS II
Abstract The Cryogenic Dark Matter Search experiment (CDMS II) used underground-based germanium and silicon detectors to search for the scattering of Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs),Expand
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 dExpand
Maximum Likelihood Analysis of Low Energy CDMS II Germanium Data
We report on the results of a search for a Weakly Interacting Massive Particle (WIMP) signal in low-energy data of the Cryogenic Dark Matter Search experiment using a maximum likelihood analysis. AExpand
Low-mass dark matter search results from full exposure of the PandaX-I experiment
We report the results of a weakly interacting massive particle (WIMP) dark matter search using the full 80.1 live-day exposure of the first stage of the PandaX experiment (PandaX-I) located in theExpand
Background assessment for the TREX dark matter experiment
TREX-DM is conceived to look for low-mass Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs) using a gas Time Projection Chamber equipped with Micromegas readout planes at the Canfranc UndergroundExpand
Direct dark matter search by annual modulation in XMASS-I
Abstract A search for dark matter was conducted by looking for an annual modulation signal due to the Earth's rotation around the Sun using XMASS, a single phase liquid xenon detector. The data usedExpand
Search for sub-GeV dark matter by annual modulation using XMASS-I detector
Abstract A search for dark matter (DM) with mass in the sub-GeV region (0.32–1 GeV) was conducted by looking for an annual modulation signal in XMASS, a single-phase liquid xenon detector. InelasticExpand


Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research A
A novel prism has been devised which can be used in place of the ‘flag’ in an optical shadow-sensing type of displacement sensor, for example. In this way, theoretically the displacement sensitivityExpand
Calculating a confidence interval on the sum of binned leakage
Abstract Calculating the expected number of misclassified outcomes is a standard problem of particular interest for rare-event searches. The Clopper–Pearson method allows calculation of classicalExpand
