DEAP/CLEAN experiment at SNOLAB (15'+5')
 
The DEAP/CLEAN experiment will search for dark matter particle interactions on 
liquid argon at SNOLAB.   The 
first 
generation detector (DEAP-1) with a 7-kg liquid argon target mass is currently 
operating underground at SNOLAB 
and an overview of that experiment, including pulse-shape discrimination (PSD) 
results for reducing β/γ 
backgrounds, and the status of data collection at SNOLAB, will be presented.  A 
larger detector (DEAP/CLEAN-
3600) 
containing a total of 3600 kg of liquid argon is currently being designed, with a 
target sensitivity to spin-
independent scattering on nucleons of 
10-46 cm2, several hundred times more sensitive than current dark matter 
experiments.  Initial construction 
activities are planned for SNOLAB beginning in 2008.  The design and 
construction status of DEAP/CLEAN-3600 
will 
be presented.
