Inauguration of the XENON1T Experiment

The XENON1T experiment at Gran Sasso Underground Laboratory is about to start after several years of preparation and installation. The experiment was inaugurated on Nov.11. It uses 3.5 ton of ultra-pure liquid xenon to search for dark matter and will become the largest and most sensitive dark matter detector upon starting.

XENON100 Constrains Dark Matter Interacting with Electrons

Dark matter experiments usually look for signals of dark matter interacting with the nuclei, and so far there are stringent constraints from liquid xenon experiments. Now, XENON100 experiment also placed tight constrains for dark matter interacting with electrons. With ultra-low electron recoil background in XENON100, the new result rules out the interpretation of DAMA/LIBRA modulation… Read More »
