Casting a wide signal net with future direct dark matter detection experiments

Article, Preprint English OPEN
Gelmini, Graciela B.; Takhistov, Volodymyr; Witte, Samuel J.;

As dark matter (DM) direct detection experiments continue to improve their sensitivity they will inevitably encounter an irreducible background arising from coherent neutrino scattering. This so-called "neutrino floor" may significantly reduce the sensitivity of an expe... View more
