  • We present an update on the development of techniques to adapt Single Molecule Fluorescent Imaging for the tagging of individual barium ions in high pressure xenon gas detectors, with the goal of realizing a background-free neutrinoless double beta decay technology. Previously reported progress is reviewed, including the recent demonstration of single barium dication sensitivity using SMFI. We then describe two important advances: 1) the development of a new class of custom barium sensing… CONTINUE READING
