Mr Daniel Naim


Low energy nuclear recoil events are of great interest in the search for Dark Matter, specifically for probing lower mass WIMP models. They also give us a better understanding when developing advanced detectors for reactor antineutrino monitoring. LLNL and UC Davis are collaborating to study ~ 1 keV Nuclear Recoils in a liquid xenon using a dual phase time projection chamber (XeNeu). In this talk I will present preliminary results of 2.4 MeV neutron recoils from a DD generator and compare them to LUX ionization results. Then briefly discuss our charge yield measurements for sub-KeV recoils taken at TUNL's 570 KeV neutron source.
