We have performed measurements of scintillation light in liquid neon, observing a signal yield in our detector as high as (3.5 $\ifmmode\pm\else\textpm\fi{}$ 0.4) photoelectrons/keV. We measure pulse shape discrimination efficiency between electronic and nuclear recoils in liquid neon from 50 to 300 keV nuclear recoil energy. We also measure the ${\mathcal{L}}_{\mathrm{eff}}$ parameter in liquid neon between 30 and 370 keV nuclear recoil energy, observing an average ${\mathcal{L}}_{\mathrm{eff… 
Effect of an electric field on liquid helium scintillation produced by fast electrons
The dependence on applied electric field (0--40 kV/cm) of the scintillation light produced by fast electrons and $\ensuremath{\alpha}$ particles stopped in liquid helium in the temperature range of
Sub-Penning gas mixtures: new possibilities for ton- to kiloton-scale time projection chambers
In this work, we present the concept for large low-background experiments in which an unusual gas mixture gas serves as a seamless, high-QE, near-100%-coverage photodetector for scintillation or
Development of a Readout System for Noble Gas Detectors
The design of a data acquisition (DAQ) system for the readout of high-pressure noble gas scintillation detectors is presented. These detectors are to be used in radiation portal monitors (RPM) to
Liquid noble gas detectors for low energy particle physics
We review the current status of liquid noble gas radiation detectors with energy threshold in the keV range, which are of interest for direct dark matter searches, measurement of coherent neutrino
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.

Analysis of the first underground run and background studies of the Argon Dark Matter experiment
Dark Matter is a collisionless and non-luminous kind of matter, whose existence is inferred through its gravitational effects at the galactic, cluster and large scales in the Universe. From the
