Sumner TJ, 2008, Fundamental physics experiments in space (within ESA), Pages: 36-42

As a discipline Fundamental Physics is a relatively new domain within the European Space Agency for carrying out dedicated space experiments. However the availability of new technologies making a very quiet environment in space accessible, together with a powerful scientific motivation have created a community of scientists who are promoting a number of experiments. The motivations, technologies and some specific mission concepts will be reviewed.

IceCube is a new high-energy neutrino telescope which will be coming online in the near future. IceCube will be capable of measuring fluxes of all three flavors of neutrino, and its peak neutrino energy sensitivity will be in the TeV-PeV range. Here, after a brief description of the detector, we describe its anticipated performance with a selection of physics topics: supernovae, extraterrestrial diffuse and point sources of neutrinos, gamma-ray bursts, neutrinos from WIMP annihilation, and cosmic ray composition. © 2008 The Physical Society of Japan.

First results are presented from an analysis of data from the DRIFT-IIa and DRIFT-IIb directional dark matter detectors at Boulby Mine in which alpha particle tracks were reconstructed and used to characterise detector performance—an important step towardsoptimising directional technology. The drift velocity in DRIFT-IIa was 59:3 0:2 (stat) 7:5 (sys) ms 1based on an analysis ofnaturally occurring alpha-emitting background. The drift velocity in DRIFT-IIb was 57 1 (stat) 3 (sys) ms 1determined by theanalysis of alpha particle tracks from a210Po source. Three-dimensional range reconstruction and range spectra were used to identifyalpha particles from the decay of222Rn,218Po,220Rn and216Po. This study found thatð22 2Þ%of218Po progeny (from222Rn decay)did not plate out and remained suspended in the 40 Torr CS2gas fill until they decayed. A likely explanation for this is that some of thepolonium progeny are produced in an uncharged state. For216Po progeny (from220Rn decay) the undeposited fraction was apparentlymuch higher atð100þ0 35Þ% most likely due to a shorter lifetime, causing a larger fraction of the progeny to decay whilst drifting to the cathode plane. This explanation implies a much slower drift time for positively charged polonium progeny compared to CS2 ions.

Results are presented from the first underground data run of ZEPLIN-II, a 31 kg two-phase xenon detector developed to observe nuclear recoils from hypothetical weakly interacting massive dark matter particles. Discrimination between nuclear recoils and background electron recoils is afforded by recording both the scintillation and ionisation signals generated within the liquid xenon, with the ratio of these signals being different for the two classes of event. This ratio is calibrated for different incident species using an AmBe neutron source and 60Co γ-ray sources. From our first 31 live days of running ZEPLIN-II, the total exposure following the application of fiducial and stability cuts was 225 kg × days. A background population of radon progeny events was observed in this run, arising from radon emission in the gas purification getters, due to radon daughter ion decays on the surfaces of the walls of the chamber. An acceptance window, defined by the neutron calibration data, of 50% nuclear recoil acceptance between 5 keVee and 20 keVee, had an observed count of 29 events, with a summed expectation of 28.6 ± 4.3 γ-ray and radon progeny induced background events. These figures provide a 90% c.l. upper limit to the number of nuclear recoils of 10.4 events in this acceptance window, which converts to a WIMP–nucleon spin-independent cross-section with a minimum of 6.6×10−7 pb following the inclusion of an energy-dependent, calibrated, efficiency. A second run is currently underway in which the radon progeny will be eliminated, thereby removing the background population, with a projected sensitivity of 2×10−7 pb for similar exposures as the first run.

We present details of the technical design, manufacture and testing of the ZEPLIN-III dark matter experiment. ZEPLIN-III is a twophasexenon detector which measures both the scintillation light and the ionisation charge generated in the liquid by interacting particlesand radiation. The instrument design is driven by both the physics requirements and by the technology requirements surrounding the useof liquid xenon. These include considerations of key performance parameters, such as the efficiency of scintillation light collection, restrictionsplaced on the use of materials to control the inherent radioactivity levels, attainment of high vacuum levels and chemical contaminationcontrol. The successful solution has involved a number of novel design and manufacturing features which will be of specific use tofuture generations of direct dark matter search experiments as they struggle with similar and progressively more demanding requirements.

The AMANDA neutrino detector has been in operation at the South Pole for several years. A number of searches for extraterrestrial sources of high energy neutrinos have been performed. A selection of results is presented in this paper. The much larger IceCube detector will extend the instrumented ice volume to a cubic kilometer and 9 out of 80 planned IceCube strings have been deployed to date. We present the status for both detectors.
