    RECENTLY PUBLISHED PAPER

     

    S. Al Kenany et al, “Super CDMS Cold Hardware Design”, Journal of Low Temperature Physics, DOI 10.1007/s10909-012-0584-9, March 2012.

     

    Abstract:

     

    We discuss the current design of the cold hardware and cold electronics to be used in the upcoming SuperCDMS Soudan deployment. Engineering challenges associated with such concerns as thermal isolation, microphonics, radiopurity, and power dissipation are discussed, along with identifying the design changes necessary for SuperCDMS SNOLAB. The Cryogenic Dark Matter Search (CDMS) employs ultrapure 1-inch thick, 3-inch diameter germanium crystals operating below 50 mK in a dilution cryostat. These detectors give an ionization and phonon signal, which gives us rejection capabilities regarding background events versus dark matter signals.

     

    A poster of same title was presented at the Low Temperature Detectors -LTD-14, in Heidelberg, Germany, August 2011.
