Event description: 

This prospectus carries the goal of testing the DAMA/LIBRA (DL) dark matter claim by combining two collaborations who have set forth to reproduce the DL annual modulation signature, COSINE-100 and ANAIS-112. COSINE-100’s recent modulation results support both the no modulation case and the DL modulation case. ANAIS- 112 excludes DL to 2σ. A combination of the two experiments would allow for a sensitive search from opposite sides of the world, notably, Spain and Korea. Because the data already exists to accomplish this analysis, my work in-person with both the COSINE and ANAIS collaborations facilitates a smooth combination of the two experiments.
