Dark matter and other low-background experiments
- Valentyna Mokina (HEPHY)
Low-temperature single-quantum detectors have long been used in the search for new physics beyond the Standard Model.
Since they were first proposed for neutrino physics experiments in 1984 by E. Fiorini and T. Niinikoski, there have been impressive technical advances: today these techniques offer the high energy resolution and scalability required for competitive experiments that address...
The CYGNO project aims at realising a 1 cubic meter gaseous Time Projection Chamber (TPC) equipped with a Scientific CMOS (sCMOS) commercial cameras to optically readout Gas Electron Multiplier (GEM) to be operated at the underground Laboratories of Gran Sasso (LNGS).
The purpose of the project is to study the technology needed for a larger size gaseous TPC (30-100m^3) operated at atmospheric...
