Description

The CDEX Collaboration has been pursuing a research program on low mass dark matter searches at the China JinPing Underground Laboratory, located in Sichuan, China, with about 2400 m of rock overburden. We report on the results of low mass WIMPs and axion-like particles searches with a p-type point-contact germanium detector. The exclusion constraints on the WIMP-nucleon spin-independent and spin-dependent coupling as well as solar axion and axion-like particles are derived based on 335.6 kg-day of data from CDEX-1. The experimental details and CDEX-10 program will be described. Some research activities including germanium detector fabrication, crystal growth as well as low-noise low-background electronics, coupled with underground site, towards the goals of the direct detection of light WIMPs and double beta decay experiment will be discussed.
