CaWO4 crystals as scintillators for cryogenic dark matter search

Abstract:

Although it is well known that CaWO4 is a scintillator it is not often used. mainly because it has a slow light response. However, a high Z and a good light output make this crystal a candidate for use in direct dark matter search experiments. The Cryogenic Rare Event Search using Superconducting Thermometers (CRESST II) experiment looks. for hypothetical massive elementary particles called Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs). In an elastic collision of WIMPs with ordinary matter a W...
