Abstract

We report the result of a blinded search for weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs) using the majority of the SuperCDMS Soudan data set. With an exposure of 1690 kg d, a single candidate event is observed, consistent with expected backgrounds. This analysis (combined with previous Ge results) sets an upper limit on the spin-independent WIMP-nucleon cross section of 1.4×10-44 (1.0×10-44) cm2 at 46 GeV/c2. These results set the strongest limits for WIMP-germanium-nucleus interactions for masses >12 GeV/c2.
