A position-sensing system for the top PMT array in the LUX-ZEPLIN dark matter experiment

Abstract:

LUX-ZEPLIN (LZ) is a next-generation liquid xenon dark matter detection experiment, searching for direct interactions with WIMPs. As it is a low-background experiment using high-purity xenon, the sensors installed to monitor the experiment must be custom-made from a short list of acceptable materials. This includes the position sensors that will monitor the relative position of the top photomultiplier tube (PMT) array with respect to the cryostat vessel that surrounds it. LZ will operate a...
