PandaX-II released the official 54-ton-day WIMP search results

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.
