DEAP-3600 in water shield

Welcome to the DEAP-Carleton home page

The Dark Matter Experiment with Argon Pulse shape discrimination (DEAP) involves using a liquid argon scintillation counter designed for low background, low energy threshold detection of nuclear recoil events consistent with WIMP dark matter.  More than 85% of the mass in the universe consists of dark matter.  Directly detecting dark matter particles would be one of the most exciting discoveries of recent times.
