Description

Nuclear Emulsions for WIMP Search (NEWS) is a directional dark matter search experiment using full solid detector. We developed original super-high-resolution nuclear emulsion called Nano Imaging Tracker (NIT) which can detect around 100 nm tracks. We also constructed a new composite readout system for such extremely short tracks. Some recent background rejection techniques also showed remarkable improvement. These developments provide low energy tracking, high angular resolution, and good scalability. In this talk, I will report on our detector potential, recent R&D status and future prospects of our technology.
