XENON / DARKSIDE
Luca Scotto Lavina leads the Xenon group in the LPNHE Laboratory, Paris. He currently works on XENON Program (XENON100, XENON1T and XENONnT experiments) and the future DARWIN project, both looking for a direct detection of Dark Matter in the Universe with a liquid xenon TPC. Before being recruited by CNRS (2010), he worked in CHORUS (PhD thesis in 2005) and OPERA experiments, as well as in studies for possible future neutrino facilities in Europe. Finally he also worked on the ArDM experiment (direct dark matter search with liquid Argon). For the XENON program, he is currently in charge of the computing system and analysis tools, the xenon storage and recovery cryogenic system, while in DARWIN he leads the WP on Liquid Xenon Target.
