2017

Follow our talk "Phonon-mediated KIDs as light detectors for rare events search: the CALDER project", and come to have a look at our poster "Read-out electronics for the Kinetic Inductance Detectors of CALDER" at the 16th International Superconductive Electronics Conference (ISEC-2017).

We will present our latest results at the 4th International Conference on Technology and Instrumentation in Particle Physics (TIPP17).

ERC week al Dipartimento di Fisica: ERC Open Labs
La Sapienza partecipa alle celebrazioni promosse dall'Agenzia Esecutiva del Consiglio Europeo della Ricerca in occasione del decimo anniversario di ERC, il programma che supporta ricercatori di eccellenza di qualsiasi età e nazionalità. Dal 13 al 15 marzo si terrà la Sapienza ERC Week, che prevede una serie di eventi rivolti sia alla comunità scientifica che al grande pubblico.
Nell'ambito di tale iniziativa, il Dipartimento di Fisica, grazie al contributo di ben 11 ERC Grantees, ospiterà il 15 marzo, a partire dalle ore 15.00, una conferenza divulgativa che si terrà presso l'Aula Cabibbo (Edificio Fermi) e che proseguirà attraverso un tour che permetterà al grande pubblico di visitare i laboratori dei Principal Investigator ERC, tra i quali quello di CALDER.

We will present the status of the development of phonon mediated Kinetic Inductance Detectors at the Workshop on Axion Physics and Experiments (Frascati, 28 March 2017).

2016

We completed the commissioning of a new refrigerator, hosted in the laboratory of cryogenic detectors (Roma University, 1st floor of Marconi building). Don't miss the inauguration! On Dec. 22 we will make an introductive seminar about the applications of this instrument in particle physics and astrophysics (Conversi Room, 2 PM), followed by an house-warming party in the laboratory!

Follow our next talk at the 3rd International Workshop on Superconducting Sensors and Detectors (IWSSD 2016)

We will present the results of the first project phase, now completed, and preliminary results of the second project phase at the 38th International Conference on High Energy Physics (ICHEP 2016)

The target of the first project phase (RMS energy resolution of 80 eV RMS) was reached! All the details about the new detector design and the new tools for data analysis can be found in our last paper (ArXiv link)

We will present the physics potential of the CALDER light detectors at NEUTRINO 2016

We will present a summary on the fabrication of TiN and Aluminum KIDs, and we will describe the CALDER project and discuss our most recent in the 5th Workshop on the Physics and Applications of Superconducting Microresonators.

Presenteremo i nostri ultimi risultati alla conferenza IFAE 2016 (XV Incontri di Fisica delle Alte Energie). Italian only.

Follow our next presentation "New application of superconductors: high sensitivity cryogenic light detectors" at the 14th Vienna Conference on Instrumentation.

2015

Our article "The sound of the Universe: a journey to discover the origin of life" is available on Platinum November-2015.

The most recent results of CALDER will be presented at the Low Temperature Detectors Workshop (LTD16).
