A LIKELIHOOD RATIO ALGORITHM FOR REMOVING LOCALIZED ALPHA PARTICLE BACKGROUNDS IN THE DEAP-3600 DETECTORDownload
DEAP-3600 (Dark Matter Experiment using Argon for Pulse shape discrimination) is a single phase dark matter experiment using a tonne-scale mass of liquid argon as a target to observe spin-independent interactions with Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs). Alpha decays from radioactive...
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...
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...
Improvements to the resolution and efficiency of the DEAP-3600 dark matter detector and their effects on background studiesDownload
The Dark matter Experiment using Argon Pulse-shape discrimination will be a tonne scale liquid argon experiment to detect scintillation light produced by interactions with weakly interacting massive particles, leading dark matter candidates. The detector will be constructed out of acrylic and use...
The SNO+ liquid scintillator response to low-energy electrons and its effect on the experiment’s sensitivity to a future neutrinoless double beta decay signalDownload
The SNO+ experiment is set to join the international competition of experiments searching for neutrinoless double beta decay. By loading 780 t of liquid scintillator with 0.5% natural tellurium, and with its location 2 km underground at SNOLAB, SNO+ aims to have sensitivity to determining the...
