Development of innovative cryogenic detectors for precise measurement of coherent elastic neutrino-nucleus scattering
Session and Location
Wednesday Session, Poster Wall #26 (Robert-Schumann-Room)
The recent observation of coherent elastic neutrino-nucleus scattering (CENNS) opens up a new way to search for beyond standard model physics at low energies in the neutrino sector. The development of ultra low threshold cryogenic detectors with fast time response and good background discrimination is a promising way to fully exploit the spectrum of neutrino-induced nuclear recoils and perform precision physics. In this context, the BASKET (Bolometers At Sub KeV Energy Thresholds) R&D program initiated at CEA aims at looking for and studying innovative crystals and thermal sensors for the prototyping of bolometers suitable for the detection and measurement of CENNS. This poster reports on the first tests of a Li2WO4 scintillating bolometer, and present the overall BASKET program strategy in order to achieve this goal.
