Abstract

The DarkSide experiment aims to perform a background-free direct search for dark matter with a dual-phase argon TPC. The current phase of the experiment, DarkSide-50, is acquiring data at Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso and produced the most sensitive limit on the WIMP-nucleon cross section ever obtained with a liquid argon target (2.0 × 10-44 cm2 for a WIMP mass of 100 GeV/c2). The future phase of the experiment will be a 20 t fiducial mass detector, designed to reach a sensitivity of ∼ 1 × 10-47 cm2 (at 1 TeV/c2 WIMP mass) with a background-free exposure of 100 ty. This work contains a discussion of the current status of the DarkSide-50 WIMP search and of the results which are more relevant for the construction of the future detector.
