1306.0065 (Michael Woods et al.)

Underground Commissioning of LUX    [PDF]

Michael Woods, for the LUX Collaboration
LUX is a dual-phase xenon TPC designed for the direct detection of dark matter. Using 370 kg of xenon, LUX is capable of setting a WIMP-nucleon cross section limit at 2 x 10^-46 cm^2 after 300 days of running. LUX will surpass all existing dark matter limits for WIMP masses above 10 GeV within weeks of beginning its science run. Following a successful six month surface run, the detector has recently been deployed underground, and we expect completed commission in the near future. Updates on status and results are provided.
