AB - Using pulse shape analysis of data from 173 operating days of our 6.2 kg NaI detector in the energy range 7-10 keV we present new limits on weakly interacting massive particles that may constitute the dark matter. An improvement of a factor >30 has been obtained over Ge for spin-dependent dark matter interactions while limits for coherent interactions are comparable to Ge for masses > 100 GeV.
