CUORE is a cryogenic experiment located at the underground Gran Sasso National Laboratories in Italy, and is searching for the neutrinoless double beta decay of 130Te. CUORE operates 988 TeO2 crystals at a base temperature of ∼10mK, and is the first ton-scale and ultra-low background bolometric experiment ever realized for this aim.
Different phenomena contribute to the CUORE energy spectra, and their understanding is of fundamental importance for a correct interpretation of the results. In this poster, the main aspects of the CUORE background due to radioactive contaminations will be presented.
The study of the contributions to the CUORE energy spectrum is fundamental to interpret its results.
