Agnese, R. et al., HVeV Run 2
Public Material: HVeV Run 2
This Public Documentation accompanies the results on electron-recoiling dark matter (ERDM) from a 3 week long run of a 1g HVeV detector in the Northwestern ADR. During this run, one week of data (roughly 12 hours per day for 7 days) was acquired at 100V bias with a charge resolution of 0.03 electron-hole pairs, and 3 days at 60V with a resolution of 0.05 electron-hole pairs. Co-57 and laser calibrations were acquired, and a 0V control sample was also acquired over multiple days. The resulting limits for DM-electron scattering and DM absorption are given below, along with plots approved for public release.
These results are published in Phys. Rev. D 102, 091101(R)
Agnese, R. et al.,CDMSlite Run 2 period 1 LIPs Search
Public Material: CDMSlite Run 2 period 1 LIPs Search
his Public Documentation accompanies the results of the search for Lightly Ionizing Particles (LIPs) using CDMSlite Run 2 period 1 data. The analysis is looking for LIPs of mass 5 MeV/$c^2$ to 100 TeV/$c^2$, charge e/100 to e/10$^8$, and $\beta\gamma$ 0.1 to 10$^6$. Geant4 simulation is used to create the probability distribution functions (PDFs) for LIPs of different charges, mass and $\beta\gamma$. The analysis efficiencies will be the same as the CDMSlite WIMP search with two additional correction factors to account for an additional source of inefficiency in singles and radial cuts. These factors arise due to the fact that unlike WIMPs, LIPs are capable of multiple detector interactions as well as multiple interactions within same detector. These correction factors are calculated using data from Geant4 simulation. The analysis is exploring new LIPs parameter space.
