Determining the WIMP mass from a single direct detection experiment (15'+5')
 
The energy spectrum of nuclear recoils 
in Weakly Interacting Massive Particle (WIMP)
 direct detection experiments depends on
  the underlying WIMP mass (strongly for light WIMPs, weakly
  for heavy WIMPs).  We discuss how the accuracy with which the WIMP mass
  could be determined by a single direct detection experiment depends on the
  detector configuration and the WIMP properties. In particular we  examine the
  effects of varying the underlying WIMP mass and cross-section, the
  detector target nucleus, exposure, energy threshold and maximum
  energy, the local circular speed and the background event rate and
  spectrum.
