Title: Results from the Super Cryogenic Dark Matter Search Experiment at Soudan

Here, we report the result of a blinded search for weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs) using the majority of the SuperCDMS Soudan data set. With an exposure of 1690 kg d, a single candidate event is observed, consistent with expected backgrounds. This analysis (combined with previous Ge results) sets an upper limit on the spin-independent WIMP–nucleon cross section of 1.4×10 -44 (1.0×10 -44) cm 2 at 46 GeV/c 2. These results set the strongest limits for WIMP–germanium-nucleus interactions for masses >12 GeV/c 2.
