Dark Matter and Neutrino Physics with Cryogenic Detectors

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

We will use the wafer to produce a thermometer for our active ring detector, or fabricate
a dedicated thermometer chip to use for this purpose. Our collaborators at TAMU have
a germanium crystal that they are willing to cut into a ring shape active detector for our
prototype test. We will integrate this Ge ring to our thermometer on a chip, and then
integrate that into our special detector holder coupled to a spare CDMS II or
SuperCDMS Soudan detector. We plan to perform prototype tests and publish results.
Because we are moving our lab from MIT to Northwestern, there will be a natural period
where we will concentrate less on the R&D and more on the SuperCDMS SNOLAB
work while our new lab is being commissioned.
