Welcome to the DM-Ice Website!

DM-Ice is a NaI(Tl) direct detection dark matter experiment. The first generation, DM-Ice17, deployed 17 kg of NaI(Tl) into the South Pole ice and is actively taking data. It has demonstrated the excellent environmental conditions and ability to perform this work in such a remote location. The full-size detector, DM-Ice250, will be comprised of 250 kg of NaI(Tl) that will run in both the Northern (Yangyang, South Korea) and Southern (South Pole) hemisphere. Current work is underway at Boulby and Yangyang in crystal development in preparation for the full scale deployment.
