The Cryogenic Dark Matter Search (CDMS) is attempting to find dark matter particles using silicon and germanium crystals cooled to almost absolute zero. Scientists predict that when a dark matter particle interacts with the crystals, it will cause the crystals to vibrate. The nature of the vibration would provide information about the particle that caused it. SuperCDMS SNOLAB, one of the most sensitive dark matter detectors in the world, is looking for light dark matter.
