Results and Plans of DarkSide
Show general info
Content: DarkSide is a program that searches for Dark Matter using low radioactivity argon in a two phase Time Projection chamber. DarkSide-50 is the first physics grade detector with approximately 50 kg of fiducial argon. After a few years of detector operation, we present results of our blind analysis of a (16,660+-270) kg d exposure. We find no events in the dark matter selection box and set a 90% C.L. upper limit on the dark matter-nucleon spin-independent cross section of 1.14 10-44 cm2 for a WIMP mass of 100 GeV/c2. In addition, we will briefly describe the plans for the larger detector, DarkSide-20k, which is in design and will have approximately 800 times the fiducial volume.
