Abstract

We report on progress of the XENON collaboration, which is developing a liquid xenon time projection chamber technology for use in a very-large-mass dark matter experiment. The collaboration is working towards demonstration of simultaneous ionization and scintillation measurement to provide strong background rejection. A 100 kg module will powerfully probe WIMP rates predicted by supersymmetry.
