Description

As it was reported that ZnWO4 scintillator has the directional sensitivity, we had started to study on ZnWO4 for the dark matter search. To begin with, we investigated responses to alpha particles and measured the wavelength and the decay constant of the scintillation light using a (2mm)^3 crystal. Then we are investigating a (9mm)^3 crystal and some (1cm)^3 crystals. We also mention some plans for making larger crystals and another types of crystals.
