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.

DM-Ice has now formed a new collaboration with KIMS-NaI, COSINE-100, with ~100 kg of NaI(Tl) crystals deployed in Yangyang Laboratory. DM-Ice will be going back to the South Pole after few years of data taking with COSINE-100, so stay tuned!
