An analysis of the sensitivity of a low pressure time projection chamber to a directional anisotropy due to WIMP interactions
The Dark Matter Time Projection Chamber (DMTPC) collaboration is a dark matter direct detection effort which develops TPCs to observe and reconstruct nuclear recoils generated by incident particles.Expand
Results from the Project 8 phase-1 cyclotron radiation emission spectroscopy detector
The Project 8 collaboration seeks to measure the absolute neutrino mass scale by means of precision spectroscopy of the beta decay of tritium. Our technique, cyclotron radiation emissionExpand
Project 8 Phase III Design Concept
We present a working concept for Phase III of the Project 8 experiment, aiming to achieve a neutrino mass sensitivity of $2~\mathrm{eV}$ ($90~\%$ C.L.) using a large volume of molecular tritium and aExpand
A novel description and mathematical analysis of the Fractional Discrete Fourier Transform
I discuss the nature of a Fractional Discrete Fourier Transform (FrDFT) described algorithmically by a combination of chirp transforms and ordinary DFTs. The transform is shown to be consistent withExpand
Project 8 detector upgrades for a tritium beta decay spectrum using cyclotron radiation
Following the successful observation of single conversion electrons from $^{83m}$Kr using Cyclotron Radiation Emission Spectroscopy (CRES), Project 8 is now advancing its focus toward a tritium betaExpand
