ANAIS is a particle detector experiment designed to detect dark matter. ANAIS stands for “Annual modulation with NAI Scintillators”. Its main goal is the direct detection of the dark matter through its scattering off the target nuclei in a radiopure NaI(Tl) crystal. This dark matter signal should be annually modulated by the change in the relative velocity of WIMP-nucleus, a result of the rotation of the Earth around the Sun.
