Background simulations have been performed for an experimental search for neutrinoless double beta decay of 100Mo in calcium molybdate (CaMoO4) crystals, the Advanced Mo-based Rare Process Experiment (AMoRE). Using GEANT4, effects of radioactive background sources such as 238U and 232Th in the first phase of AMoRE experiment configuration were simulated for the...

The direct measurement of cosmic-ray spectrum, up to the knee region, is one of the instrumental challenge for next-generation space experiments. The main issue for these measurements is a steeply falling spectrum with increasing energy, so the physics performance of the space calorimeters are primarily determined by their geometrical acceptance and energy resolution. CaloCube is a three-years...

The metallic magnetic calorimeter (MMC) operates at tens of millikelvin temperatures, and measures temperature increases caused by particle interactions in detectors. Calorimetric detection of heat and light signals of scintillation crystals using MMCs is a promising detection technique for rare event search experiments because of its high energy resolution, low energy threshold, and particle...
