Description

Recent computational results suggest that massive directional dark matter detectors have potentials to probe WIMPs beyond the neutrino floor. Even in a case of WIMP detection claim by conventional detectors before the neutrino floor, a proposed massive directional WIMP search telescope called CYGNUS-TPC can be used to unambiguously confirm the source of the signal. Hence, there is a global effort toward building this ton scale directional WIMP search detector with sensitivity to probe these parameter spaces. But one key issue to consider in the design process is the cost and capability of the readout technology to be used. In this talk, WIMP search data obtained with a cubic meter scale directional detector when operated in a simplified readout mode will be presented. The results from this data analysis indicate that simplified readout technology with full detector fiducialisation and 3D track reconstruction at cheaper cost can be used in the design of the CYGNUS-TPC detector.
