Matt Pyle (UCB) "Athermal Phonon Detectors: World Leading Light Mass Dark Matter Sensitivity From Athermal Phonon Detectors + Preliminary Performance from Large Area Photon Detector for Next Generation Neutrinoless Double Beta Decay Experiments"

September 27, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

In this talk, we present the new world leading results from the first search of the SuperCDMS collaboration for inelastic electronic recoils from low mass dark matter dark matter (500keV – 100MeV) using our new single ionization sensitive cryogenic calorimeters.
We’ll also present preliminary performance of a large area cryogenic photon detector with applications in light mass dark matter and neutrinoless double beta decay. With 3eV sensitivity and 20us pulse rise time, it well surpasses all technical requirements for next generation cryogenic neutrinoless double beta decay experiments.
