The coldest place in the Pyrenees is in Canfranc CROSS team and LSC personnel have completed the installation of a shielded dilution refrigerator, running since last Friday April 12. Current temperature of the working area is 12.5 mK, -273.1 degrees Celsius. CROSS is a bolometric experiment to search for neutrinoless double beta decay.
First dark matter annual modulation test of DAMA/LIBRA results by ANAIS ANAIS-112, consisting of 112.5 kg of Sodium Iodine crystals, is taking data at the LSC since August 2017. This is the first model independent search for the DAMA/LIBRA modulation. No evidence of modulation found so far. More data will be accumulated in the next three years to reach the projected goal of 3 sigma sensitivity of the DAMA/LIBRA result.
