Dark matter: CRESST searches for ‘lightweights’

8 septiembre 2015

Scientists have searched for the particles of dark matter in numerous experiments – so far, in vain. With the CRESST experiment, now the search radius can be considerably expanded: the CRESST detectors are being overhauled and are then able to detect particles whose mass lies below the current measurement range. As a consequence, the chance of tracking dark matter down goes up.
