Limits on spin-dependent WIMP-nucleon cross sections from 225 live days of XENON100 data


XENON Collaboration; et al; Baudis, L (2013). Limits on spin-dependent WIMP-nucleon cross sections from 225 live days of XENON100 data. Physical Review Letters, 111(2):021301.

Abstract

We present new experimental constraints on the elastic, spin-dependent WIMP-nucleon cross section using recent data from the XENON100 experiment, operated in the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso in Italy. An analysis of 224.6 live days×34  kg of exposure acquired during 2011 and 2012 revealed no excess signal due to axial-vector WIMP interactions with Xe129 and Xe131 nuclei. This leads to the most stringent upper limits on WIMP-neutron cross sections for WIMP masses above 6  GeV/c2, with a minimum cross section of 3.5×10−40  cm2 at a WIMP mass of 45  GeV/c2, at 90% confidence level.
