Stock Photo - ArDM, Collaboration between the ETH Zurich, Zurich University, University of Granada, CIEMAT, and CERN..Particle physics experiment based on a ton scale liquid argon detector to search for signals from WIMPs (Weakly Interacting Massive Particles), which are candidates for the Dark Matter in the universe. The ArDM(Argon Dark Matter) Experiment is the first tonne-scale Dark Matter experiment operating at a deep underground site.The detector is designed as a dual-phase liquid-argon (LAr) time projection chamber (TPC) optimised for the detection of nuclear recoils induced by WIMPs. ArDM-1t contributes to the future 20 tonnes DarkSide 20-t.,.The Laboratorio Subterraneo de Canfranc (LSC) has been excavated in the rock 800 m deep under the Mount Tobazo in the Spanish side of the Aragon Pyrenees. The rock filters the cosmic radiation providing the ""cosmic silence"", which is necessary to study rarely occurring natural phenomena such as the interactions with an atomic nucleus of neutrinos of cosmic origin or of particles of the invisible ""dark matter"". Dark matter provides 85% of the mass of the Universe, but we do not know what it is made of."", Canfranc, Huesca, Aragon, Spain, Europe
