The ZEPLIN-III Direct Dark Matter Search

Author: Alexander Murphy

University of Edinburgh

Co-Authors: Alex Murphy, for the ZEPLIN-III Collaboration

Session: APP: Astroparticle Physics

Presentation type: Talk


The existence of dark matter, contributing significantly to the overall energy density of the Universe, has become one of pillars of modern cosmology. Similarly in particle physics, it is now viewed as perhaps the best evidence for new physics beyond the Standard Model. This is truly remarkable given that conclusive evidence of its existence has yet to be found. ZEPLIN-III, located at the Boulby mine in the north east of England, delivered one of the world's leading direct search results in its first science run. Following extensive upgrades, a second phase of data collection is underway. The present status will be presented.
