The Ricochet experiment seeks to measure Coherent (neutral-current) Elastic Neutrino-Nucleus Scattering (CEνNS) using dark-matter-style detectors with sub-keV thresholds placed near a neutrino source, such as the MIT (research) Reactor (MITR), which operates at 5.5 MW generating approximately 2.2 × 1018 ν/second in its core. Currently, Ricochet is characterizing the backgrounds at MITR, the main component of which comes in the form of neutrons emitted from the core simultaneous with the…

Simulation of the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory Neutral Current Detectors

The Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (SNO), a heavy water Cherenkov experiment, was designed to detect solar Boron-8 neutrinos via their elastic scattering interactions on electrons, or charged current

Neutron backgrounds in the Ricochet experiment

This paper explores the impact of neutron backgrounds on the Ricochet experiment. The purpose of the Ricochet experiment is to determine the existence of sterile neutrinos via coherent

Observation of coherent elastic neutrino-nucleus scattering

The coherent elastic scattering of neutrinos off nuclei has eluded detection for four decades, but this mode of interaction offers new opportunities to study neutrino properties and leads to a miniaturization of detector size, with potential technological applications.

First Observation of Coherent Elastic Neutrino-Nucleus Scattering

The coherent elastic scattering of neutrinos off nuclei has eluded detection for four decades, even though its predicted cross section is by far the largest of all low-energy neutrino couplings. This

Large-mass ultralow noise germanium detectors: performance and applications in neutrino and astroparticle physics

A new type of radiation detector, a p-type modified electrode germanium diode, is presented. It is shown that the prototype displays, for the first time, a combination of features (mass, energy

Sterile neutrinos, coherent scattering, and oscillometry measurements with low-temperature bolometers

Coherent neutrino-nucleon scattering offers a unique approach in the search for physics beyond the Standard Model. When used in conjunction with mono-energetic neutrino sources, the technique can be

Markov Chain Monte Carlo analysis to constrain Dark Matter properties with directional detection

Directional detection is a promising dark matter search strategy. Indeed, weakly interacting massive particle (WIMP)-induced recoils would present a direction dependence toward the Cygnus

Coherent Neutrino Scattering with Low Temperature Bolometers at Chooz Reactor Complex

We present the potential sensitivity of a future recoil detector for a first detection of the process of coherent elastic neutrino nucleus scattering (CEνNS). We use the Chooz reactor complex in

Constraints on low-mass WIMPs from the EDELWEISS-III dark matter search

We present the results of a search for elastic scattering from galactic dark matter in the form of Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs) in the 4–30 GeV/c2 mass range. We make use of a 582
