  • Abstract The Dark Matter Time Projection Chamber (DMTPC) collaboration is developing prototype detectors to measure both the energies and directions of nuclear recoils. The intended application is to exploit the expected directional anisotropy of dark matter velocities at Earth to unambiguously observe dark matter induced recoils. The detector consist of low-pressure CF 4 TPC's with CCD cameras, PMT's, and charge amplifiers for readout. This talk gives an overview of the experiment and… CONTINUE READING
