Dark Matter: We’re Sure It’s There, But How Do We Find It?
In the last decade, there has been impressive experimental progress in detector technologies to directly detect dark matter interactions with normal matter. The detector volumes have successfully been scaled up by orders of magnitude and the radiation purity of the material improved to parts per billion. The sensitivity of recent direct detection experiments has therefore improved tremendously and is uniquely suited to solve the dark matter puzzle. This review will summarize the current direct dark matter search results.
