The CUORE Experiment: Bolometric Detectors in 1-Ton Scale Projects

  • P. Gorla


CUORE is the first of a new generation 1-ton scale cryogenic detectors for rare events physics. CUORE, a detector to search neutrinoless Double Beta Decay of 130Te, is an array of 988 TeO2 bolometers that will work at 10 mK. Latest developments on detectors performances are reported together with improvements reached in background reduction. Results of CUORICINO, a single CUORE tower running since 2003, that widely showed the feasibility of the project are also reported and discussed.
