Caption: A new calibration technique fired neutrons directly into the Large Underground Xenon dark matter detector, increasing calibration accuracy by a factor of 10. Analysis based on the calibration confirms that if "low-mass" dark matter particles had passed through the detector during its initial run, Large Underground Xenon would have seen them.
