The PandaX-II experiment, a half- ton scale dual-phase xenon experiment at the China JinPing underground laboratory (CJPL), which leaded by Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU), has recently reported the dark matter search results from its commissioning run (run 8, 19.1 live days) with a 5845 kg day exposure. The data were contaminated with significant 85Kr background.
About three quarters of a century ago, Ettore Majorana introduced the novel elusive particles into theoretical physics, what are now known as "Marjorana fermions", unlike electrons and positrons, which constitute their own antiparticles. The monumental significance of this development required many intervening decades to fully appreciate, and despite being an "old" idea Majorana fermion remain central to diverse problems across modern physics, not only in neutrino physics, super-symmetry and dark matter, but also on some exotic states of condensed matter.
