Description

Starting from the achieved sensitivity of EDELWEISS-III with its FID800 Ge detector technology, we present the planning and actions for the next measurement phase. This will concentrate on the usage of Ge bolometers with voltage-assisted amplified heat signals (so-called Neganov-Luke mode) to explore the parameter space for low mass WIMPs (down to m~1GeV). Significant improvements in sensitivity can be realised with a moderate exposure of 350 kg.d within the next 2 years. Beyond 2017, the most promising approach to gain further sensitivity towards the neutrino floor is a joint effort to install Ge bolometers in the SuperCDMS cryogenic infrastructure to be built in SNOLAB. Current R&D activities, sensitivity projections and the EDELWEISS-EURECA project towards the SNOLAB cryogenic facility will be presented.
