The nature of dark matter remains one of the most important unresolved
questions in physics. One of the leading candidates is a class of
particles known as weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs). At
Earth, the WIMP direction undergoes a diurnal modulation that, if
detected, would provide one of the most powerful and unambiguous
signatures for discovery of Galactic dark matter. Of current
technologies employed to detect this directional signature, the low
pressure Time Projection Chamber (TPC) is the most mature. Due to low
