Characterization of Pulse–Shape Discrimination for Background Reduction in the DEAP-1 Detector
DEAP (Dark Matter Experiment with Argon and Pulse Shape Discrimination) is an experiment that aims to directly detect dark matter particles via nuclear recoils in liquid argon. The experiment uses the scintillation ...
Gamma Calibration Using A New Test Apparatus At Queen’s University And Optimization Analyses For The PICASSO Experiment
The PICASSO experiment located 2 km underground in SNOLAB is directly searching for dark matter signals by looking for interactions between dark matter particles and an active target made of superheated droplets of freon ...
Simulations of Scale-Free Cosmologies for the Small-Scale Cold Dark Matter Universe
Cosmological simulations show that dark matter halos contain a wealth of substructure. These subhalos are assumed have a mass distribution that extends down to the smallest mass in the Cold Dark Matter (CDM) hierarchy, ...
