A new look at dark matter

. The DarkSide collaboration announced on February 21, 2018, at the “UCLA Dark Matter 2018” conference in Los Angeles, the best exclusion limit in the search for low-mass dark matter. This result was achieved with the DarkSide-50 detector, which uses a very weak radioactive argon target and is installed at LNGS (Gran Sasso Underground Laboratory, Italy). The contributions of the […]
