Results and status of the CRESST experiment

Abstract:

CRESST (Cryogenic Rare Event Search with Superconducting Thermometers) employs cryogenic detectors for the direct search for weakly interacting massive dark matter particles (WIMPs). In the second phase of the experiment scintillating calcium tungstate crystals are used to discriminate background by means of different light yield for background and WIMP signals. After first results with this novel technique have been obtained, the experimental setup is being upgraded for further background re...
