Description

DEAP-3600 is a single phase liquid argon dark matter experiment, based at SNOLAB, in Sudbury, Ontario. A sensitivity to spin-independent WIMP-nucleon interactions at a cross section of 10-46cm2 is projected at 100GeV WIMP mass. This poster discusses the position reconstruction algorithms in DEAP-3600. Event reconstruction is designed for a spherical liquid scintillator detector with PMTs arranged for 4π coverage. Detector simulation is used to parametrise the variation of expected event topology in charge and time with position and energy, and the difference between observed and expected topology is minimised during event reconstruction. The algorithms are benchmarked using data taken during detector commissioning.
