Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review

Abstract

XMASS experiment is ongoing at Kamioka observatory in Japan, and one of its purposes is mainly for the dark matter search using 835 kg liquid xenon as a target. Low-energy X-ray calibration-sources using characteristic X-rays are planning to be developed for the XMASS calibration.
