Silicon photomultipliers are regarded as a very promising technology for next-generation, cutting-edge detectors for low-background experiments in particle physics. This work presents systematic reflectivity studies of Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPM) and other samples in liquid xenon at vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) wavelengths. A dedicated setup at the University of Münster has been used that allows to acquire angle-resolved reflection measurements of various samples immersed in liquid xenon with 0…

Improved Limit on Neutrinoless Double-Beta Decay in ^{130} Te with CUORE.
New results from the search for neutrinoless double-beta decay in ^{130} Te with the CUORE detector are reported, finding no evidence for 0νββ decay and setting a 90% credibility interval Bayesian lower limit of 3.2×10′  yr on the half-life for this process.
Reflectance of Silicon Photomultipliers at Vacuum Ultraviolet Wavelengths
Characterization of the vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) reflectance of silicon photomultipliers (SiPMs) is important for large-scale SiPM-based photodetector systems. We report the angular dependence of the
