     Shining light on Dark Matter particles: first results from DAMA/LIBRA

                                   Abstract:
 The highly radiopure about 250 kg NaI(Tl) DAMA/LIBRA set-up is running at the
  Gran Sasso National Laboratory of the I.N.F.N.. Here first results, obtained
   with this second generation experiment by exploiting the model independent
annual modulation signature for Dark Matter particles in the galactic halo, are
  presented (exposure of 0.53 ton x yr). DAMA/LIBRA data confirm the evidence
 firstly pointed out by DAMA/NaI. The combined analysis of the data of the two
     experiments (total exposure 0.82 ton x yr) gives a C.L. at 8.2 sigma.
