Xenon - The Xenon Experiment


Program Description: The XENON experiment is a 3500kg liquid xenon detector to search for the elusive Dark Matter. The XENON dark matter experiment is installed underground at the Laboratory Nazionali del Gran Sasso of INFN, Italy. A 62 kg liquid xenon target is operated as a dual phase (liquid/gas) time projection chamber to search for interactions of dark matter particles.

Year Started: 2013.

Organization Description: The XENON experiment is a collaboration of 100 scientists, representing 20 different nationalities, and 17 institutions across the world. About 50 graduate students are working in the collaboration to make this experiment the most sensitive search for dark matter ever performed.
