Lauren Hsu - Dark Matter Searches with CDMS Silicon Detectors
The standard WIMP pardigm motivates us to search for relic dark matter in the form of an O(100) GeV particle. Traditional direct detection experiments have thus been designed to search for WIMPs in the mass range of several 10's to 1000's of GeV. However, in past years there have been a series of direct detection experiments reporting excess events over background at the lowest recoil...
