Description

DARWIN (DARk matter WImp search with Noble liquids) is a design study towards the realization of a ton to multi-ton scale dark matter facility in Europe, based on the liquid argon and liquid xenon time projection chamber technique. Approved by ASPERA in late 2009, DARWIN brings together several European and US groups working on the existing XENON, WARP and ArDM experiments with the goal of providing a technical design report for the realization of the facility in three years from now. I will present the status and goals of DARWIN, as well as initial results from R&D studies.
