Response of the XENON100 Dark Matter Detector to Nuclear Recoils

Dark matter is expected to induce nuclear recoils in our detector. We have demonstrated that we have an excellent matching of our expectation and the measured response of the XENON100 detector to such nuclear recoils, with an agreement at the percent level:
