Abstract
Physical principles underlying the concept of the Dark Matter (DM) are considered. Problems of Dark Matter particle detection are briefly reviewed. An original two-channel scheme for direct detection of cosmic DM particles is proposed. It is based on a super-low-temperature calorimeter and includes a nuclear spin system whose magnetic response is measured by a quantum interferometer (SQUID). Low threshold and the capability for efficiently suppressing the recoil-electron background are the most important advantages of the proposed scheme. They make it possible to detect DM particles with extremely low recoil energies and carry out direct DM search with high sensitivity.
