Demonstration of the CDMS II ZIP Technology at a Shallow Underground Site
American Institute of Physics
The most recent CDMS data run (Run 20) was the first run in which multiple ZIP detectors were deployed. Three Si (0.100 kg each) and 3 Ge (0.250 kg each) ZIPs were run with the goals of fully testing such a configuration as well as measuring the γ, β, and n rates simultaneously with Ge and Si detectors. Calibration with γ and n sources established the bulk electron recoil leakage into the neutron band to be less than 0.2%. Low background data taken during the summer of 2000 produced a simultaneous measurement of the muon coincident neutron background with Si and Ge detectors.
