Description

The aim of the MIMAC project is to detect non-baryonic Dark Matter with a directional TPC. The recent Micromegas efforts towards building a large size detector will be described, in particular the characterization measurements of a prototype detector of 10x10 cm^2 with a 2 dimensional readout plane. Track reconstruction and background rejection at low energies will be shown.
