Inside the Large Underground Xenon (LUX) dark matter detector, at the top and bottom of the detector, arrays of photomultiplier tubes (PMTs) can detect a single photon of light inside. These faint signals of light can tell physicists whether they have detected the unique signature of a Weakly Interacting Massive Particle or WIMP. Photo credit: Matthew Kapust.
