COSINE-100 WIMP search paper is published in Nature!

December 5, 2018

The first physics result of COSINE-100, testing DAMA’s result with 59.5 days of data by looking for an excess of events compared to a background model, is published in Nature! Assuming the standard dark-matter halo model, this result rules out WIMP-nucleon interactions as the cause of the annual modulation observed by the DAMA collaboration. This is a huge milestone for the COSINE-100 experiment! You can find the paper here
