Acrylic Tanks Provide Clear Window Into Dark Matter Detection

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Scientists have a new window into the search for dark matter – an acrylic vessel that features a grouping of 12-foot-tall transparent tanks with 1-inch-thick walls. The tanks, which will surround a central detector for a nearly mile-deep experiment under construction in South Dakota called LUX-ZEPLIN, will be filled with liquid that produces tiny flashes of light in some particle interactions.
