+ - LUX experiment rules out low mass dark matter

Submitted by thegreatemu
thegreatemu (1457577) writes "The LUX collaboration today released the first results using their huge liquid xenon detector to search for dark matter interactions in a live webcast from South Dakota's Sanford Lab. (Here's a copy of the talk and the corresponding paper (warning: PDFs)).
Their conclusion: they see no positive evidence for any kind of dark matter. Moreover, they have pretty conclusively (by a factor of 20!) ruled out conventional dark matter as a source of the low energy signals seen by many of their dark matter competitors (CDMS, CoGeNT, CRESST, and DAMA)."
