Direct dark matter detection within the Darkside program


We propose a research program focused in Dark Matter (DM) searches using Argon Double Phased Time Projection Chambers withinthe Darkside Collaboration. The research plan covers the high ($M_{DM}>$10~GeV) and low mass ($M_{DM <$10~GeV) range using two different techniques. Contributions are envisaged both in data analysis and Monte Carlo simulations. Additionally, we plan to participate in the RED experiment that aims to provide important neutron recoil calibration data for the Darkside program. Feasibility studies of other applications of Argon detectors will be done: measurement of Coherent Neutrino-Nucleus Elastic Scattering in nuclear reactor, and Supernova detection with DS-20K and Argo. During the last year of this project we plan to accompany the selection and design of the first experiment to be deployed in ANDES, the first South American Underground laboratory. (AU)
