The determination of dark matter constraints from liquid xenon direct detection experiments depends upon the amount of scintillation light produced by nuclear recoils in the detector, a quantity that is characterized by the scintillation efficiency factor Leff. We examine how uncertainties in the measurements of Leff and the extrapolated behavior of Leff at low recoil energies where measurements do not exist affect the constraints from experiments such as XENON10 and XENON100, particularly in the light WIMP regions of interest for the DAMA and CoGeNT experimental results.
