Solar and supernova neutrino physics with future NaI(Tl) dark matter search detectors

We investigate the prospects for measuring the coherent elastic neutrino–nucleus scattering of solar and supernova neutrinos in future NaI(Tl) dark matter detec-tion experiments. Considering the



Study of NaI(Tl) scintillator cooled down to liquid nitrogen temperature

Since early 50's NaI(Tl) scintillators have been commonly used in many branches of physics and industry due to their relatively low price, high light output and fair energy resolution. Through this

Pulse-shape discrimination between electron and nuclear recoils in a NaI(Tl) crystal

A bstractWe report on the response of a high light-output NaI(Tl) crystal to nuclear recoils induced by neutrons from an Am-Be source and compare the results with the response to electron recoils

Scintillation efficiency measurement of Na recoils in NaI(Tl) below the DAMA/LIBRA energy threshold

The dark matter interpretation of the DAMA modulation signal depends on the NaI(Tl) scintillation efficiency of nuclear recoils. Previous measurements for Na recoils have large discrepancies,

Quenching factor measurement for NaI(Tl) scintillation crystal

Scintillation characteristics of a NaI(Tl) crystal at low-temperature with silicon photomultiplier

The scintillation characteristics of a thallium-doped sodium iodide (NaI(Tl)) crystal with dimensions of 0.6 cm× 0.6 cm× 2 cm were studied by attaching a silicon photomultiplier (SiPM) directly to

Quenching and channeling of nuclear recoils in NaI(Tl): Implications for dark-matter searches

A new experimental evaluation of the quenching factor for nuclear recoils in NaI[Tl] is described. Systematics affecting previous measurements are addressed by careful characterization of the

Results from the first cryogenic NaI detector for the COSINUS project

Recently there is a flourishing and notable interest in the crystalline scintillator material sodium iodide (NaI) as target for direct dark matter searches. This is mainly driven by the long-reigning

Low temperature light yield measurements in NaI and NaI(Tl)

The scintillation light output of a pure and a Thallium doped Sodium Iodide (NaI) crystal under irradiation with 5.486 MeV α particles has been measured over a temperature range from 1.7 K to 300 K.
