Award Description: Collaborative Proposal: Continuation of the XENON Dark Matter Project: Construction and Underground Operation of an Upgraded XENON100 Detector A continuation fund to support the operation of XENON100 dark matter detection project and to support the construction of the XENON100 upgrade. An improved version of the current project.
Project Description: The XENON100 project is design to detector the missing mass of the universe -'dark matter' which believed to exist in a particle form which can be detector by very sensitive detector such as the XENON100 or its upgrade. We expect to strongly constraint on the cross section of the dark matter interaction on normal matter. Giving the best limit in the world if not discovery of such particle. The upgraded XENON100 detector will have the potential to detector the so far unseen particle.
