Cryogenic Silicon Detectors with Implanted Contacts for the Detection of Visible Photons Using the Neganov–Trofimov–Luke Effect
There is a common need in astroparticle experiments such as direct dark matter detection, double-beta decay without emission of neutrinos [$$0 \nu \beta \beta $$0νββ] and coherent neutrino nucleus

Scintillation in Low-Temperature Particle Detectors
Inorganic crystal scintillators play a crucial role in particle detection for various applications in fundamental physics and applied science. The use of such materials as scintillating bolometers,
Large area Si low-temperature light detectors with Neganov–Luke effect
Next generation calorimetric experiments for the search of rare events rely on the detection of tiny amounts of light (of the order of 20 optical photons) to discriminate and reduce background
Scintillating bolometers: A key for determining WIMP parameters
In the last decade direct detection Dark Matter (DM) experiments have increased enormously their sensitivity and ton-scale setups have been proposed, especially using germanium and xenon targets with
Advances in Bolometer Technology for Fundamental Physics
In the last decade, cryogenic bolometers have provided increasingly improved resolution and sensitivity in particle and radiation detectors. Thermal particle detectors have proven their outstanding
Feasibility Study for a First Observation of Coherent Neutrino Nucleus Scattering Using Low-Temperature Detectors.
Coherent neutrino nucleus scattering (CNNS) has so far not been observed experimentally. In the present work the feasibility of a first observation of CNNS using low-temperature detectors is studied.
Dark matter direct-detection experiments
In the past decades, several detector technologies have been developed with the quest to directly detect dark matter interactions and to test one of the most important unsolved questions in modern


Results from 730 kg days of the CRESST-II Dark Matter search
The CRESST-II cryogenic Dark Matter search, aiming at detection of WIMPs via elastic scattering off nuclei in CaWO4 crystals, completed 730 kg days of data taking in 2011. We present the data
Model for cryogenic particle detectors with superconducting phase transition thermometers
We present data on a detector composed of an 18 g Si crystal and a superconducting phase transition thermometer which could be operated over a wide temperature range. An energy resolution of 1 ke V
Voltage‐assisted calorimetric ionization detector
A new approach to ionizing radiation detection is proposed. The amount of ionization produced in a detector medium is measured by the heat generated as the charged carriers are drifted across the
