Opportunities with NEWS-G

About NEWS-G

New Experiments with Spheres-Gas (NEWS-G) is a new technology being developed to detect dark matter particles. NEWS-G uses a copper sphere filled with a noble gas, which will be ionized when a dark matter particle passes through. A probe at the centre of the sphere will measure characteristics of the ion to determine if it is a dark matter particle. Prototypes were tested in an underground laboratory in France, and the final version of the experiment was installed at SNOLAB in late 2020.
