Description

This poster presentation that will cover the basics of the Darkside (Depleted Argon cryogenic Scintillation and Ionization Detection) project, including what dark matter is and how we know it exists. It will also address the different methods other collaborations use to try to detect dark matter and special emphasis will be placed on the methods Darkside uses: scintillation and ionization. The presentation will also look at the design of the detector as it currently stands and a summary of how it will work. It will address the fairly universal problem of weeding out background signals in the detector by first addressing what those signals are, and discussing ways to minimize them or disregard them.
