On December 24, 2021, the first dark matter search result from PandaX-4T, a liquid xenon detection experiment, was published in Physical Review Letters as the "Editor's Suggestion" [1]. The American Physical Society 《Physics》 reported this PandaX-4T latest result together with another result from the Axion Dark Matter Experiment with a title of "Tightening the Net on Two Kinds of Dark Matter"

A new result on searching of light dark matter (DM) with PandaX-II experimental data was published online in Physical Review Letters on May 28, 2021 with a title of "Search for Light Dark Matter–Electron Scattering in the PandaX-II Experiment "[1]. This is the 6th PRL paper published with PandaX-II data.

The PandaX-II experiment is completed and the PandaX-4T experiment is under installation. The future PandaX program will focus on the following two main directions:

  1. Develop PandaX-4T into a multi-purpose liquid xenon experiment, to push further the dark matter search and other physics topics;
  2. Develop and operate a 100-kg high pressure gas TPC (HpgTPC), PandaX-III, as a pathfinder for a tracking calorimeter to search for $0\nu\beta\beta$ in ${}^{136}Xe$.

Hello 2021!

The full International Advisory Committee 2020 Report.
The PandaX collaboration released the latest results on the search of WIMPs and axions based on the full exposure of data at the International High Energy Physics Conference (ichep2020) on July 30, 2020. Detailed analyses were reported with an online seminar on August 20. The most stringent constraint is set for WIMPs around 10 GeV/c2 using the nuclear recoil events. The intriguing electron recoil event excess observed by XENON1T [1] was tested with the electron recoil data, and was found to be within the constraint of the PandaX-II data.

The PandaX-II collaboration released the official WIMP search results using 54 ton-day exposure on Aug. 23, 2017. No excess events were found above the expected background. The most stringent upper limit on spin-independent WIMP-nucleon cross section was set for a WIMP mass greater than $100 GeV/c^{2}$, with the lowest exclusion at $8.6\times10^{-47} cm^{2}$ at $40 GeV/c^{2}$. The result reported here is more conservative than the preliminary result shown during the TeVPA2017 conference, due to the adoption of updated photon/electron detection efficiencies.

Prof. Xiangdong Ji of Shanghai Jiao Tong University and University of Maryland, spokesperson of the PandaX Collaboration, announced new results on the dark matter (DM) search from the PandaX-II experiment on Monday Aug. 7, during the TeV Particle Astrophysics 2017 Conference at Columbus, Ohio, the United States. No DM candidate was identified within the data from an exposure of 54 ton-day, the largest reported DM direct detection data set to date.
