Description

The Korea Invisible Mass Search (KIMS) collaboration had searched for WIMP dark matter signals using an array of ultra-pure CsI(Tl) crystals. Recently KIMS group is actively developing ultra-pure NaI(Tl) crystal to confirm or reject the DAMA/LIBRA claim of an annual modulation signature. For the future of low-mass WIMP detection, KIMS collaboration has started developing cryogenic detector technology based on Oxide crystals. In this presentation, I will summarize activities of KIMS collaboration in various aspects about background reduction, detector development as well as physics achievement.
