China Dark Matter Experiment

The China Dark Matter Experiment (CDEX) is a search for dark matter WIMP particles at the China Jinping Underground Laboratory.[1] CDEX has p-type point-contact germanium detector surrounded by NaI(Tl) crystals, similar to the CoGeNT experiment. The CDEX-0 prototype was used to develop the current CDEX-1 detector, which has a detector mass of roughly 1 kg. Future plans include scaling to CDEX-10 and CDEX-1T.

CDEX-1 had first low mass results in 2013 and published limits on WIMP masses 6–20 GeV in 2014.[2]
