The Cryogenic Underground TEst facility (CUTE) will be used to test detectors for the Super Cryogenic Dark Matter Search (SuperCDMS) experiment. SuperCDMS searches for interactions of dark matter, an unknown form of matter which so far has only been observed through its gravitational effects on astronomical scales, even though it appears to be the dominant form of matter in the universe.

It is important to have a good understanding of the detector's signal response to be able to interpret the data in terms of interactions with dark matter particles. This is achieved by performing calibrations of the detectors with radioactive sources. This poster will focus on the planned neutron calibration system for CUTE.
