Michael Willers - Cryogenic Detectors in Astroparticle Physics

RTG Seminar on Mai 31st 2017

Cryogenic detectors are very important and versatile class of particle detectors with broad applications in the field of astroparticle physics. Today, these detectors are used, e.g., to directly search for dark matter, coherent neutrino nucleus scattering, the neutrino less double beta decay, and to measure the neutrino mass. This lecture will introduce the general working principle and readout of such detectors, discuss common experimental requirements as well as background suppression techniques and will exemplarily describe selected experiments from different fields of astroparticle physics.
