The design and performance of the LZ experiment is described as of March 2017 in this Technical Design Report, which documents the final design approved for construction and the sensitivity baseline for the experiment.

LZ Conceptual Design Report

The design and performance of the LUX-ZEPLIN (LZ) detector are described as of March 2015 in this Conceptual Design Report. LZ is a second-generation dark-matter detector with the potential for unprecedented sensitivity to weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs).

LUX publications

The LUX experiment has just completed operation at the Sanford Lab, and will soon be decommissioning to make way for LZ. LUX has produced several world-leading dark matter results and significant technical innovation with great relevance for LZ, and these publications are listed here.

ZEPLIN publications

The ZEPLIN programme deployed the first two-phase xenon detector for dark matter searches, and operated three innovative experiments at the Boulby Underground Laboratory (UK) since the mid 1990s. Science and technical publications from the pioneering ZEPLIN programme are listed here.
