Title: Review of Dark Matter Search with Liquid Xe Detector and Recent Results from XMASS
Date (JST): Fri, Feb 07, 2014, 13:30 - 15:00
Place: Seminar Room A
Abstract: Recently so many dark matter direct search expriments have been conducted. Among them the detectors with noble liquids, especially LXe detectors, gave the best limit on the dark matter-nucleus cross section so far. In this seminar, first I would like to review the principle of direct searches and noble liquid technologies. Then, I will explain the recent results of XMASS, the unique single phase LXe scintillator in Kamioka. I will also mention the future projects of noble liquid detectors.
