Radon-induced background and methods of its elimination in the EDELWEISS-II experiment
- 42 Downloads
The EDELWEISS-II experiment is aimed at direct search for nonbarion cold dark matter. The important problem of the experiment is a decrease in the 222Rn background and its daughter products without which it is impossible to achieve a record sensitivity to the scattering cross section of dark matter particles. A highly sensitive radon detector has been developed by means of which the facility shield is optimized and the total gamma-background is halved. The detector is used in the EDELWEISS-II facility for continuous monitoring of the radon content in the process of data sampling that plays the key role for correct data interpretation.
