Neutron Background Studies for the CRESST Dark Matter Experiment

Full-Text   Cite this paper   Add to My Lib


The new detection concept applied for the direct WIMP search experiment CRESST II, which enables a clear discrimination between electron recoils and nuclear recoils, will leave neutrons as the main background. This background will soon limit the sensitivity of the experiment and therefore become an important issue for the next phase of CRESST. We have performed a study based on Monte Carlo simulations to investigate how neutrons from different origins affect CRESST and which measures have to be taken to reach the projected sensitivity.
