First Results of the LUX Dark Matter Experiment

Results of a Search for Sub-GeV Dark Matter Using 2013 LUX Data.

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.

Measurement of the Cosmic-Induced Neutron Yield at the Modane Underground Laboratory

Muon-induced neutrons are an important background source for rare event searches such as Dark Matter searches looking for nuclear recoils induced by the elastic scattering of galactic WIMPs off

Calibration, event reconstruction, data analysis, and limit calculation for the LUX dark matter experiment

The LUX experiment has performed searches for dark-matter particles scattering elastically on xenon nuclei, leading to stringent upper limits on the nuclear scattering cross sections for dark matter.

Dark matter searches and study of electrode design in LUX and LZ

There is substantial evidence that over 80% of matter in the universe is dark matter – which is non-baryonic in nature and is thought to be composed of a new, slow-moving, stable particle not found

XAMS - development of liquid xenon detector technology for dark matter searches

One of the most promising detector technologies to directly detect weakly interacting massive particle (WIMP) dark matter are time projection chambers (TPCs) filled with dual-phase (liquid and

The XENON100 dark matter experiment

The Large Underground Xenon (LUX) experiment

Dark matter results from 225 live days of XENON100 data.

A search for particle dark matter with the XENON100 experiment, operated at the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso for 13 months during 2011 and 2012, has yielded no evidence for dark matter interactions.

New Measurement of the Scintillation Efficiency of Low-Energy Nuclear Recoils in Liquid Xenon

Particle detectors that use liquid xenon (LXe) as detection medium are among the leading technologies in the search for dark matter weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs). A key enabling

Status of the LUX Dark Matter Search

The Large Underground Xenon (LUX) dark matter search experiment is currently being deployed at the Homestake Laboratory in South Dakota. We will highlight the main elements of design which make the

Cryogenics for the LUX Detector

This paper describes results on R&D of an economical and efficient cryogenic system for the LUX detector. LUX is a new WIMP dark matter search experiment to be carried out at the Homestake (South

Muon-induced background study for underground laboratories

We provide a comprehensive study of the cosmic-ray muon flux and induced activity as a function of overburden along with a convenient parametrization of the salient fluxes and differential

NEST: A Comprehensive Model for Scintillation Yield in Liquid Xenon

A comprehensive model for explaining scintillation yield in liquid xenon is introduced. We unify various definitions of work function which abound in the literature and incorporate all available data
