Searching for dark matter with CRESST

Abstract:

The CRESST II experiment is a dark matter search using cryogenic phonon-scintillation detectors, aiming to detect WIMP dark matter particle interactions. The detector consists of individual, modular and scintillating (CaWO4 or ZnWO4) target crystals, each equipped with a phonon sensor for precise determination of the energy deposited in the crystals. Each module is further equipped with a separate cryogenic scintillation light detector, allowing event-by-event background discrimination. An ex...
