Material screening and selection for XENON100


XENON100 Collaboration; Aprile, E; Arisaka, K; Arneodo, F; Baudis, L; Askin, A; Behrens, A (2011). Material screening and selection for XENON100. Astroparticle Physics, 35(2):43-49.

Abstract

Results of the extensive radioactivity screening campaign to identify materials for the construction of XENON100 are reported. This dark matter search experiment is operated underground at Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso (LNGS), Italy. Several ultra sensitive High Purity Germanium detectors (HPGe) have been used for gamma ray spectrometry. Mass spectrometry has been applied for a few low mass plastic samples. Detailed tables with the radioactive contaminations of all screened samples are presented, together with the implications for XENON100.
