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 ...
Phenomenological Studies and Analysis Techniques to Search for Light Dark Matter With NEWS-G
The NEWS-G collaboration uses gas-filled Spherical Proportional Counters (SPCs) to search for low-mass dark matter. As one of several competing collaborations pushing the low-energy frontier of particle detection technology, ...
Alpha backgrounds in the DEAP dark matter search experiment.
One of the pressing concerns in Dark Matter detection experiments is ensuring that the potential signal from exceedingly rare Dark Matter interactions is not obscured by background from interactions with more common ...
