XENON100 Dark Matter Results from a Combination of 477 Live Days


XENON100 Collaboration; Aprile, E; Aalbers, J; Agostini, F; et al; Barrow, P; Baudis, L; Di Giovanni, A; Franco, D; Galloway, A; Kish, A; Mayani, D; Pakarha, P; Piastra, F; Wei, Y; Wulf, J (2016). XENON100 Dark Matter Results from a Combination of 477 Live Days. Physical review. D, 94(12):122001.

Abstract

We report on WIMP search results of the XENON100 experiment, combining three runs summing up to 477 live days from January 2010 to January 2014. Data from the first two runs were already published. A blind analysis was applied to the last run recorded between April 2013 and January 2014 prior to combining the results. The ultralow electromagnetic background of the experiment, ∼5×10-3  events/(keVee×kg×day)) before electronic recoil rejection, together with the increased exposure of 48  kg×yr, improves the sensitivity. A profile likelihood analysis using an energy range of (6.6–43.3)  keVnr sets a limit on the elastic, spin-independent WIMP-nucleon scattering cross section for WIMP masses above 8  GeV/c2, with a minimum of 1.1×10-45  cm2 at 50  GeV/c2 and 90% confidence level. We also report updated constraints on the elastic, spin-dependent WIMP-nucleon cross sections obtained with the same data. We set upper limits on the WIMP-neutron (proton) cross section with a minimum of 2.0×10-40  cm2 (52×10-40  cm2) at a WIMP mass of 50  GeV/c2, at 90% confidence level.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
