Description

We describe new instrumentation for the SIMPLE experiment, and its use in identifying, validating and rejecting non-WIMP backgrounds in the project measurements. Besides acoustic intrinsic discrimination, evidence is provided for a possible discrimination between alpha and neutron events via analysis of the signal parameters.
