Agnese, R. et al.,Dark Absorption in SuperCDMS Soudan submitted to Physical Review D - 1911.11905

Public Material: Dark Absorption in SuperCDMS Soudan

This Public Documentation accompanies the results on "Dark Absorption in SuperCDMS Soudan". Using data from CDMSlite (Runs 2 and 3) and select iZIP detectors from the SuperCDMS experiment at the Soudan Underground Laboratory, upper limits on the axioelectric coupling of axion-like particles (ALPs) and the kinetic mixing parameter of dark photons (DPs) are set. The analysis is based on Poisson statistics and assumes the respective particles constitute all of the galactic dark matter.

Public Material: HVeV Run1: Updated DM-Electron Scattering Cross Section Limits

We present the first limits on inelastic electron-scattering dark matter and dark photon absorption using a prototype SuperCDMS detector having a charge resolution of 0.1 electron-hole pairs (CDMS HVeV, a 0.93 gram CDMS HV device). These electron-recoil limits significantly improve experimental constraints on dark matter particles with masses as low as 1 MeV/c2. We demonstrate a sensitivity to dark photons competitive with other leading approaches but using substantially less exposure (0.49 gram days). These results demonstrate the scientific potential of phonon-mediated semiconductor detectors that are sensitive to single electronic excitations.
