The PandaX experiment and new results
In recent years, the weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs) has become the most promising candidate of dark matter. Among a variety of experiments, the PandaX experiment attempts to search the WIMP-nucleon scattering signals in China JinPing Underground Laboratory, using dual-phase liquid xenon time projection chamber detection technique. As the first stage of experiment, PandaX-I has finished the data taking with an exposure of 54.0 kg x 80.1 live days. The next stage, PandaX-II, is now under commissioning with about 500 kg target mass. In this talk, I will describe the PandaX experiment in details, and also present the new results of PandaX-I.
