Dark Matter changes by decades. Composition of Universe NASA/WMAP Science Team Cold Dark Matter 23% 2003 WMAP Quantity is determined, we want to know Quality Motivation How to distinguish WIMPs from BGs? Realistic distinctive WIMP signals arise from the earths mo in the galactic halo. The annual modulation of event rate is one of the possible WIMP signal caused by earths revolution around the sun. The earths rotation through the galaxy provides WIMP wind.

Most convincing signature would be identified with recoil direction sensitive detector. WIMP Wind of Today WIMP wind Revolution 30km/s Cygnus Sun VE=232 km/s DARK HALO (Maxwellian) 220km/s W N

E Organic single crystals Scintillation efficiency depends on direction of nuclear recoils with respect to crystallographic axes. We focus on the stilbene crystals. Stilbene has an advantage in realizing large single crystal. Light yield : 30% of NaI max : 410 nm Decay time : 5 ns In high energy regions, the response was P. Heckmann et al., Z. Phys 162(1961) 84

Scintillation only efficiency depends on monoclinic system Anisotropy for Carbon Recoils measured the angle/energy dependence of the scintillation icience of carbon recoils in a stilbene crystal using neutro energies of 30 keV to 1MeV.

Anisotropy for Carbon Recoils The variation of the efficiency is 7 % over the measured energy region. Only 7%, however, the WIMP wind is strong enough!

The response of carbon recoils in a stilbene crysta in interested energy region was measured and the sensitivity to WIMPs was investigated. We have performed pilot measurements in Kamioka

Underground laboratory, which presents a new method of dark matter search and the start point of the developments. We proposed new target (octafluoronaphetalene) for SD interacting dark matter.
