1  UCHIDA 2014 limit is for inelastic scattering ${{\mathit X}^{0}}$ ${+}$ ${}^{129}\mathrm {Xe}^{*}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit X}^{0}}{+}$ ${}^{129}\mathrm {Xe}^{*}$ (39.58 keV).
2  ANGLOHER 2002 limit is for spin-dependent WIMP-Aluminum cross section.
3  BENOIT 2000 find four event categories in Ge detectors and suggest that low-energy surface nuclear recoils can explain anomalous events reported by UKDMC and Saclay NaI experiments.
4  KLIMENKO 1998 limit is for inelastic scattering ${{\mathit X}^{0}}$ $~{}^{73}\mathrm {Ge}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit X}^{0}}$ ${}^{73}\mathrm {Ge}{}^{*}$ ($13.26$ keV).
5  BELLI 1996 limit for inelastic scattering ${{\mathit X}^{0}}$ ${}^{129}\mathrm {Xe}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit X}^{0}}{}^{129}\mathrm {Xe}^{*}(39.58$ keV).
6  BELLI 1996C use background subtraction and obtain $\sigma <150~$pb ($<1.5~$fb) (90$\%$ CL) for spin-dependent (independent) ${{\mathit X}^{0}}$-proton cross section. The confidence level is from R. Bernabei, private communication, May 20, 1999.
7  BERNABEI 1996 use pulse shape discrimination to enhance the possible signal. The limit here is from R.$~$Bernabei, private communication, September 19, 1997.
8  SARSA 1996 search for annual modulation of WIMP signal. See SARSA 1997 for details of the analysis. The limit here is from M.L.$~$Sarsa, private communication, May 26, 1997.
9  SMITH 1996 use pulse shape discrimination to enhance the possible signal. A dark matter density of $0.4~$GeV$~$cm${}^{-3}$ is assumed.
10  GARCIA 1995 limit is from the event rate. A weaker limit is obtained from searches for diurnal and annual modulation.
11  SNOWDEN-IFFT 1995 look for recoil tracks in an ancient mica crystal. Similar limits are also given for ${}^{27}\mathrm {Al}$ and ${}^{28}\mathrm {Si}$. See COLLAR 1996 and SNOWDEN-IFFT 1996 for discussion on potential backgrounds.
12  REUSSER 1991 limit here is changed from published ($0.04$) after reanalysis by authors. J.L.$~$Vuilleumier, private communication, March 29, 1996.
