Telling signal from background in a liquid argon dark matter detector

he DEAP-3600 Dark Matter detector has been taking data for more than a year now, and now is a unique opportunity to join the analysis effort of the quickly growing dataset.  DEAP searches for interactions of dark matter particles in a liquid argon target. The TUM group focuses on elimination of the most prominent background, namely background from electromagnetic events. Thesis topics include the study of rare coincidences which could fool the background suppression algorithm, study of the performance of different suppression algorithms over many months, developing statistical models to estimate the probability of mis-characterizing a background for a signal event, and investigation of the effect of the trigger efficiency on the background suppression power. Students should be familiar with or willing to learn C/C++, the linux command line interface, scientific programming, and statistics. The work takes place within an international collaboration and there will be many opportunities to practice presenting your analysis results to other physicists.
