EDELWEISS direct dark matter search. (15'+5')
 
EDELWEISS is a direct dark matter search located in the low radioactivity 
environment of the Modane Underground Laboratory. The experiment uses Ge 
detectors at very low temperature in order to identify eventual rare nuclear 
recoils induced by elastic scattering of WIMPs from our galactic halo. The 
commissioning of the second phase of the experiment, involving more than 7 kg 
of Ge detector, has been completed in 2007. These ionization/heat detectors 
allow an event by event electronic/nuclear recoil discrimination. 
A complementary active rejection of surface events is required to achieve the 
physics goals of the present phase. We present preliminary results of two 
types of detectors with active rejection (detector with NbSi thin films 
thermometer and a new type of bolometer with interdigitized electrodes for the 
charge collection).
