Scientific Program and Timetable

The primary goal for MDDMv is to facilitate studies towards realizing the scientific potential of mineral detectors. The required studies can be divided into two broad (interconnected) categories: modeling the geological history of potential sample target minerals and establishing the efficacy of different techniques to read-out damage tracks from nuclear recoils.
