Backgrounds in the DEAP-3600 Dark Matter Experiment
Journal of Physics, Conference Series
The DEAP-3600 experiment, located at SNOLAB, is searching for dark matter with a single phase liquid argon (LAr) target. For a background-free exposure of 3000 kg·yr, the projected sensitivity to the spin-independent WIMP-nucleon cross section at 100 GeV/c 2 WIMP mass is 10 −46 cm 2 . The experimental signature of dark matter interactions is keV-scale argon recoils producing 128 nm LAr scintillation photons which are wavelength shifted and observed by 255 PMTs.
