WIMP searches with cryogenic detectors

Abstract:

The existence of dark matter in the Universe is well established and various techniques are applied to either directly or indirectly detect this dark matter. Supersymmetry provides a well-motivated candidate, the WIMP, which many direct searches seek to detect. Some of the present dark matter experiments use cryogenic detectors, operating in the mini-Kelvin temperature range. This article introduces the general concept underlying these detectors, discusses the different types of detectors in ...
