The Cryogenic Dark Matter Search (20'+5')
 
The Cryogenic Dark Matter Search (CDMS II) utilizes high purity germanium 
particle
detectors to search for Dark Matter in the form of Weakly Interacting Massive
Particles (WIMPs).  We use the ionization and athermal phonons from particle
interactions to separate the largely electromagnetic backgrounds from candidate
WIMP-nucleon scattering in our detectors.  We report on the latest results 
which
reach a sensitivity of 4.6 x 10^-44 cm^2 for the WIMP-nucleon spin-
independent cross
section at a WIMP mass of 60 GeV/c^2.   We also report on the status of the
experiment and comment on the SuperCDMS experiment which is focused on 
increasing the
sensitivity of this technology.
