Can we overcome the neutrino floor at high masses?

25 Sep 2020 O'Hare Ciaran A. J.

The neutrino floor is a barrier in the parameter space of weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs) below which discovery is impeded due to an almost irreducible background of neutrinos. Directional gas time projection chambers could discriminate against solar neutrinos, relevant for WIMP masses $\lesssim$10 GeV... (read more)
