Description

NEWAGE is a direction-sensitive direct dark matter search experiment. NEWAGE uses a micro-TPC with a detection volume of 30 by 30 by 40 cm^3 read by one of the MPGD variations, \mu-PIC. We have been performing underground measurement since 2013 with a new detector NEWAGE-0.3b’. We published the best direction-sensitive limits in PTEP (2015) 043F01s with 30 days’ live time data. We continued the measurement and the results from half-a-year data will be presented. In order to improve the sensitivities, we are developing a low-radioactive \mu-PIC and a negative-ion TPC. These recent activities to improve the sensitivity will also be reported.
