The first dark matter limits SD [13,14] produced by COUPP was achieved with a 2 kg (1L) prototype which produced the best spin-dependent (SD) proton limits at the time over a significant mass range.
For the future the collaboration PICO (which joints the expertise of COUPP and PICASSO) plans to build a new bubble chamber on the scale of tons [18].
The success of this possible separation of the a background has quickly stimulated COUPP and this technique was applied to the bubble chambers; the level of the rejection of this background is now <[10.sup.-3], still keeping an acceptance for recoiling nuclei of 98% [21].
