Description

Astrophysical observations give overwhelming evidence for the existence of dark matter. While the DAMA collaboration has asserted that they observe a dark matter-induced annual modulation signal, other direct detection dark matter experiments have yet to confirm this observation. DM-Ice17, a prototype experiment consisting of 17kg of NaI(Tl) detectors, has been continuously operating at the South Pole for over 4 years demonstrating the feasibility of a low-background experiment in the Antarctic ice. The results from DM-Ice17 and future prospects for DM-Ice will be presented.
