The Cryogenic Dark Matter Search consists of a network of silicon and germanium crystals cooled to near absolute zero.
According to a report in Nature News, the project is called the Cryogenic Dark Matter Search II (CDMSII) experiment.

CDMS, the Cryogenic Dark Matter Search, looks for WIMPs using germanium and silicon crystals chilled to nearly absolute zero.
And an experiment in a mine in northern Minnesota, the Cryogenic Dark Matter Search, tries to spot dark matter jostling germanium and silicon detectors.
For instance, the current version of the Cryogenic Dark Matter Search experiment, called CDMS II, at Soudan is made up of five stacks of germanium and silicon wafers, all sheathed in five nested copper containers.
The experiment, known as the Cryogenic Dark Matter Search, uses germanium detectors cooled to nearly absolute zero to record tiny vibrations imparted by a proposed type of dark matter called weakly interacting massive particles, or WIMPs.
