The ANKOK project is a new dark matter search experiment in Japan using the double phase liquid argon detector which is specialized for the low mass (~10 GeV/c2) WIMP detection. We
are currently proceeding R&D efforts to establish its physics sensitivity, such as understanding of the liquid argon scintillation and ionization processes for very low energy deposition (~20 keV) and development of the new photo-sensor which has direct sensitivity for the 128 nm VUV light.
In the next few years, we are targeting to construct a detector with ﬁducial mass of several tens of
kg, and to collect the underground physics data to search for the low mass WIMP.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
