TREX-DM

TREX-DM is a medium scale prototype that is intended to extend the background studies performed on the TREX “axion” prototypes in a larger detector-size, keeping (or improving) their low threshold and discrimination capabilities. TREX-DM is thus built with the highest radiopurity standards of TPCs so far, and will explore the potential of TREX concepts in the search for WIMPs.

The detector is finishing assembly at the moment at the T-REX lab at UNIZAR. A picture of the detector vessel made of high purity copper is shown below.
