Paper Abstract

This paper describes for construction a prototype version of a new type of liquid xenon detector, specifically capable of distinguishing low energy (keV-range) nuclear recoil events from background events. Such a detector would be ideally suited to the detection of weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPS) which may constitute a significant part of the galactic dark matter. The same principle could be used also for the coherent detection of neutrinos from a supernova burst.
