Identification of, and discrimination against, background radiation is of the utmost importance in dark matter searches. DEAP-3600 (Dark Matter Experiment using Argon Pulse shape discrimination) is a single phase, direct dark matter detector with a 3300 kg liquid argon target housed in a...
The DEAP-3600 experiment is a 3,600 kg Liquid Argon (LAr) target scintillation detector designed to detect the Weakly Interacting Massive Particle (WIMP) dark matter candidate. The detector works by detecting photons released by nuclear recoils of Argon nuclei, using an array of 255 nearly...
Dark Matter is a fundamental building block and is essential for the universe to be understood on many scales. Currently, the top candidate for Dark Matter is a weakly interacting massive particle (WIMP). The DEAP-3600 experiment was built to search for rare interactions between baryonic matter...
