CUPID is a next-generation tonne-scale bolometric neutrinoless double
beta decay experiment to probe the Majorana nature of neutrinos and
discover Lepton Number Violation if the effective neutrino mass is
greater than 10 meV. CUPID will be built on experience, expertise and
lessons learned in CUORE,CUPID-Mo and CUPID-0. The detector technology is
based on scintillating bolometers of Li2MoO4 enriched in the isotope of
interest 100Mo. CUPID will consist of about 1500 hybrid heat-light
detectors for a total isotope mass of 250 kg. The CUPID scientific reach
is supported by a detailed and safe background model that uses CUORE,
CUPID-Mo and CUPID-0 results. The required performance
in terms of energy resolution, alpha rejection factor and crystal purity
have already been demonstrated and will be presented.
