Talk Dark Matter Direct Searches Parallel session : Direct Searches 2


Mr Tatsuhiro Naka (Nagoya university)


We are approaching the R&D of high resolution nuclear emulsion:NIT for directional dark matter search. NIT is the only detector that is direction-sensitive and solid. Now this project is developing for construction of prototype detector and test running. In this talk, status of new production system of nuclear emulsion and readout system of recoil tracks will be reported.
