Implications on Inelastic Dark Matter from 100 Live Days of XENON100 Data

Given the extreme sensitivity of the XENON100 detector, we could rule out the most common scenarios that are envisioned in the so-called inelastic dark matter scenario:

Likelihood Approach to the First Dark Matter Results from XENON100

We have improved the approach to the search for dark matter in direct search experiments using a profile likelihood approach that allows a natural transition from a limit to a discovery:

Study of the electromagnetic background in the XENON100 experiment

We have published our excellent understanding of the background in the XENON100 detector that comes from beta and gamma radiation:
