Coherent Neutrino Nucleus Scattering (CNNS) is a neutral current weak interaction and thus flavour independent. Due to the small transferred momenta (< 50 MeV), neutrinos are scattered coherently off all nucleons. The cross section is proportional to the square of the neutron number of the target nuclei.
Several experiments for the direct dark matter search are looking for recoil-nuclei produced by WIMP scattering. In all present experiments for WIMP search it is not posible to decide whether a recoil-nucleus was produced by neutrinos or WIMPS. Solar neutrinos could be a background for the next generation dark-matter experiments.
The results of calculations of the rate of expected neutrino events for direct dark matter search at different threshold energies will be presented.
