A possible method for WIMPs detection using liquid xenon scintillation is discussed [1]. Background from cosmic and radioactive gamma rays at energies down to the keV region can be easily rejected by requiring the presence of proportional scintillation. The results from a basic test are presented and a prototype detector design is proposed.
