Abstract

Evidence from astrophysics and particle physics suggest that weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs) may comprise most of the mass of the galaxy. If these particles exist, they should be detectable by cryogenic detectors. The instrumentation needed to detect WIMPs is considered. The superheated superconducting colloid detector (SSCD) is well suited for use in the search for WIMPs. A single dc superconducting quantum interference device is required in such a detector.
