We are the Particle Astrophysics Group at Brown University. Our group consists of faculty, post docs, graduate students, and undergraduates conducting experimental work in direct dark matter detection.

Our group is currently involved in a research collaboration called LZ, a 10 tonne liquid xenon experiment almost 1 mile underground at the Sanford Underground Laboratory in South Dakota.

Congratulations to Angela White on completing her senior thesis examing metastable xenon production cross sections via inelastic neutron scatters!

Congratulations to Anna Zuckerman on completing her senior thesis on low-energy, multiple-scatter neutron event calibration techniques in LZ!
