Our Group

Profs Carmen Carmona and Luiz de Viveiros, 1 mile underground at the Sanford Underground Research Facility, before the LUX dark matter detector was built.

We are the Dark Matter and Neutrino Mass Group at Penn State University.  Although we have only recently moved to Penn State, our group brings a long record and expertise in the design and construction of noble liquid TPC detectors and their operation in the search for dark matter, and is currently part of two dark matter direct detection experiments, LUX and LZ.

We are also involved in Project 8, an experiment aimed at measuring the neutrino mass by making precise measurements of the electron energy in beta decays, and on the development of novel rare-event detectors.  Visit our Research page for more details on these experiments and our work.


WE’RE CURRENTLY RECRUITING POSTDOCS AND STUDENTS.
