First results from BASKET innovative bolometers for the CEνNS detection

Not scheduled

BASKET (Bolometers At Sub KeV Energy Threshold) is an R&D aiming at the development of innovative detectors for the measurement of the Coherent Elastic Neutrino-Nucleus Scattering, an interaction characterized by a cross-section 10 to 1000 times greater than the neutrino physics standard detection channels.
The only experimental signature is a low energy nuclear recoil (10 to 100eV).
BASKET is facing the challenge to develop very sensitive bolometric detectors, maintaining a background noise below the expected signal while being operated in close vicinity of a nuclear reactor in aboveground conditions. For this reason, several developments are required to reach an energy threshold of the order of 10eV and a response time in the range of 0.1-1ms to have a reasonable dead time and effectively discriminate the background.
I will show first results about investigating and evaluating the performances of different thermal sensors coupled to Li2WO4 crystals.
