Exploring Scenarios for Directional Dark Matter with NEWSdm

Keywords: Dark Matter direct search. WIMPs. NIT-Emulsion detector. Directionality


Aiming at the direct detection of WIMPs as dark matter constituents, the NEWSdm Collaboration is performing
a wide experimental activity at the Gran Sasso Lab in Italy. Achievements in spatial resolution,
detection threshold, and directional tracking are reported. Measurements of low-energy neutron flux were
performed. Further study of background sources will allow scaling up of the detector mass. Applications
to boosted DM scenarios are envisaged.
