In science:

The modern definition of a Fermi liquid is a system of fermions (usually electrons) where the effect of electron-electron interactions are sufficiently tame that they can be accurately described with perturbation theory. A Fermi liquid is in this sense “close” to a noninteracting electron gas.
Quantum Phenomena in Low-Dimensional Systems
In low dimensional systems, especially one-dimensional systems, Fermi liquid theory and many-body perturbation theory can break down, leading to what is called a non-Fermi liquid.
Quantum Phenomena in Low-Dimensional Systems
In fact, where the two-dimensional electron gas stands in this regard is not known at present, although most indications are that is it a Fermi liquid (or possibly what is known as a marginal Fermi liquid).
Quantum Phenomena in Low-Dimensional Systems
For example, it is not even clear whether the normal states are Fermi liquids or non-Fermi liquids.
Quantum Phenomena in Low-Dimensional Systems
In these systems, the properties of even weakly interacting particles differ dramatically from that of noninteracting ones, and the generic conducting state of one-dimensional bosons, fermions, or even spins is a Luttinger liquid instead of a Landau Fermi-liquid.
Quantum Phenomena in Low-Dimensional Systems
The breakdown of Fermi liquid theory in one dimension is now known to be the norm, and the generic nonFermi-liquid state of matter in one dimension is called the Luttinger liquid.
Quantum Phenomena in Low-Dimensional Systems
The simplest type of Luttinger liquid is characterized by a single dimensionless parameter g , which, roughly speaking, characterizes the degree to which the system deviates from a Fermi liquid, defined as g = 1.
Quantum Phenomena in Low-Dimensional Systems
However, there some important distinctions between these Luttinger liquids (called chiral Luttinger liquids) and the Luttinger liquids described above: First, the value of g in a chiral Luttinger liquid is predicted to be simply related to the filling factor ν of the electron gas, so it can be determined rather easily.

The ZEPLIN Program uses a series of Xenon-based scintillators devices able to discriminate the background from the nuclear recoils in liquid or liquid-gas detectors in various ways.
Direct detection of WIMPs with conventional (non-cryogenic) detectors. Experimental review
The ZEPLIN II and III detectors use in addition to the liquid scintillator signal the ionisation produced in the liquid to drift the released charge out of the liquid into the gas phase.

We then discuss the current ZEPLIN II program as a prototype of large liquid Xenon detectors. Cryoarray is a possible cryogenic detector. Finally we discuss ZEPLIN IV and other one ton liquid Xenon detectors and the limiting backgrounds for such detectors.
