The Coherent Neutrino-Nucleus Interaction Experiment (CONNIE) uses low-noise fully depleted charge-coupled devices (CCDs) with the goal of measuring low-energy recoils from coherent elastic scattering (CE$\nu$NS) of reactor antineutrinos with silicon nuclei and testing nonstandard neutrino interactions (NSI). We report here the first results of the detector array deployed in 2016, considering an active mass 47.6 g (8 CCDs), which is operating at a distance of 30 m from the core of the Angra 2… 
Search for coherent elastic neutrino-nucleus scattering at a nuclear reactor with CONNIE 2019 data
The Coherent Neutrino-Nucleus Interaction Experiment (CONNIE) is taking data at the Angra 2 nuclear reactor with the aim of detecting the coherent elastic scattering of reactor antineutrinos with
Sensitivity of a Liquid Xenon Detector to Neutrino–Nucleus Coherent Scattering and Neutrino Magnetic Moment from Reactor Neutrinos
Liquid xenon is one of the leading targets to search for dark matter via its elastic scattering on nuclei or electrons. Due to their low-threshold and low-background capabilities, liquid xenon
Interplay between nonstandard and nuclear constraints in coherent elastic neutrino-nucleus scattering experiments
New measurements of the Coherent Elastic Neutrino-Nucleus Scattering (CEvNS) are expected to be achieved in the near future by using two neutrino production channels with different energy
Resolving the LMA-dark NSI degeneracy with coherent neutrino-nucleus scattering
In the presence of non-standard neutrino interactions (NSI), a degeneracy exists in neutrino oscillation data, which involves the flipping of the octant of the mixing angle θ12 and the type of the
Recent Probes of Standard and Non-standard Neutrino Physics With Nuclei
We review current standard and non-standard neutrino physics probes that are based on nuclear measurements. We pay special attention on the discussion of prospects to extract new physics at prominent

This paper reproduces the energy spectrum measured by the CCD (Charge-Coupled Devices) detectors of the CONNIE experiment that looks for the Coherent Elastic Scattering process between Antineutrinos
Passive Low-Energy Nuclear-Recoil Detection with Color Centers
Crystal damage events such as tracks and point defects have been used to record and detect radiation for a long time and recently they have been proposed as a means for dark matter detection. Color
Elastic and inelastic scattering of neutrinos and WIMPs on nuclei
The event rates for WIMP-nucleus and neutrino-nucleus scattering processes, expected to be detected at ton-scale rare-event detectors, are investigated. We focus on nuclear isotopes that correspond
