Low-energy structure of the dark-matter detector nuclei 71Ga, 73Ge and 127I has been studied by using the nuclear shell model. The calculations have been done in realistic model spaces by using renormalized microscopic two-body interactions. The resulting ground states have been used to calculate theoretical predictions for detection rates of the lightest supersymmetric particle (LSP) in experiments studying elastic scattering of the LSP’s from atomic nuclei.

Key words
