CALDER (Cryogenic wide-Area Light Detectors with Excellent Resolution) developed high-sensitivity cryogenic light detectors for the identification of rare events in double beta decay experiments. The detectors are based on superconducting sensors called KIDs (Kinetic Inductance Detectors) and feature fast response time and capability of parallel readout (multiplexing), making them very promosing for future experiments. The project is closed and was supported by an ERC Starting Grant (contract No. 335359). Check out our results in the publications section!.
