The European Underground Rare Event Calorimeter Array (EURECA) will be an
astro-particle physics facility in the Laboratoire Souterrain de Modane, aiming to
directly detect galactic dark matter. The EURECA collaboration unites CRESST,
EDELWEISS and the Spanish-French experiment ROSEBUD, thus concentrating
effort on cryogenic detector research in Europe into a single facility. The aim is
explore scalar cross sections in the 10E-9 – 10E-10 picobarn region with a
mass of up to one tonne. A major advantage of EURECA is the planned use of
just one target material (multi target experiment for WIMP identification).
