Within the ERC funded project ULTIMATE, we perform R&D towards the ultimate dark matter detector based on a dual-phase liquid xenon TPC. Such detector, maybe realized within the DARWIN framework, will have a target mass of ~40t of liquid xenon. Its sensitivity will start to be limited by coherent neutrino-nucleus interactions, a background which cannot be reduced by shielding.

More information will come soon...


The project is funded by an ERC Consolidator Grant from the European Commission, project number 724320. erc.png
