We have published the results from a year-long search for dark matter. Unfortunately, we could find no evidence for dark matter yet:
We have published a paper that describes the XENON100 detector in quite some detail, together with the corrections that need to be applied to the data we collect with it:
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:
Every part that goes into the construction of our detectors has to be specially selected to be extremely cleam in terms of radioactive impurities. This effort is published:
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:
We have published our excellent understanding of the background in the XENON100 detector that comes from beta and gamma radiation:
E. Aprile et al. (XENON100), Study of the electromagnetic background in the XENON100 experiment, arXiv:1101.3866. The paper is also published in Physical Review D83 (2011), 082001, with an erratum ibid. D85 (2012), 029904.
Already the XENON100 commissioning run is sensitive enough to provide relevant limits on dark matter interactions. We have published these first results:
