Title: Support for the LZ dark matter experiment at the University of Maryland

Abstract

The LUX-ZEPLIN (LZ) experiment is a direct detection search for thermal WIMP dark matter. Its WIMP target consists of seven fully active tonnes of liquid xenon (LXe) within an instrumented TPC volume. LZ will achieve a WIMP-nucleon cross section sensitivity of 1.5 x 10-48 cm2. LZ is the successor to the highly successful LUX experiment, and is being installed in the Davis Cavern water tank at the Sanford Underground Research Facility (SURF) in Lead, South Dakota.
