The Scintillating Bubble Chamber (SBC) collaboration is combining the well-established liquid argon and bubble chamber technologies to search for low-mass, GeV-scale dark matter. Liquid-noble bubble chambers benefit from the excellent electron-recoil insensitivity inherent in bubble chambers with the addition of energy reconstruction provided from the scintillation signal for background rejection. The projected sensitivity with a quasi-background-free 10-kg-year exposure at a 100~eV nuclear recoil threshold is approximately 10$^{-43}$~cm$^2$ for a 1~GeV$/c^2$ dark matter mass.

Anonymous Report 1 on 2022-10-9 (Invited Report)


In this proceeding author present SBC-LAr10 and SBC-SNOLAB experiments, describes the set-up and the goal to probe new parameter space below 10GeV/c2. The current stage is testing components and system that planned to be used. Also in the text done an overview of the possible background sources and described plans on calibration.
The manuscript is clearly written and well organised. It is also suitably formatted for publication.
I recommend the manuscript for publication in its present form.

Do I need to create a new submission for this correction or is there a way to resubmit under this submission? Thank you.
