LUX Collaboration

The LUX collaboration has assembled a team with the breadth of experience and experience to design, construct and deploy a 300 kg active mass two-phase Xe experiment that will extend current dark matter sensitivity two orders of magnitude beyond current best limits, and to establish a clear leadership role for the United States in the field of direct dark matter detection. LUX is composed of the majority of the US groups from XENON10, the majority of the US component of ZEPLIN II, and new groups that bring essential experience in background rejection and rare event detection from the large scale neutrino experiments such as SuperK, SNO, Kamland and Double Chooz.
