Description

Weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs) are a very promising explanation for the nature of dark matter. The XENON100 experiment aims to detect WIMP-nucleon interactions using a dual phase time projection chamber (TPC) with a total liquid xenon target of 62kg. This talk will focus on the final analysis for spin independent and spin dependent WIMP-nucleon interactions of XENON100 where the three major science datasets are combined into a single result. In addition to the first presentation of a yet unpublished science campaign, various improvements to the analysis will be highlighted, which allow us to produce the most robust and strongest result of XENON100.
