Comment on "On the subtleties of searching for dark matter with liquid xenon detectors"


XENON Collaboration; Baudis, L; Behrens, A; Ferella, A D; Kish, A; Marrodan Undagoitia, T; Schumann, M; et al (2012). Comment on "On the subtleties of searching for dark matter with liquid xenon detectors". ArXiv.org 1208.5762, Cornell University.

Abstract

In a recent manuscript (arXiv:1208.5046) Peter Sorensen claims that XENON100's upper limits on spin-independent WIMP-nucleon cross sections for WIMP masses below 10 GeV "may be understated by one order of magnitude or more". Having performed a similar, though more detailed analysis prior to the submission of our new result (arXiv:1207.5988), we do not confirm these findings. We point out the rationale for not considering the described effect in our final analysis and list several potential problems with his study.
