We present the status of the development of Superconducting Tunnel Junction (STJ) detector with the cryogenic preamplifier as a far-infrared single photon detector for the COsmic BAckground Neutrino Decay search (COBAND) experiment. The photon energy spectrum from the radiative decay of cosmic background neutrino is expected to have a sharp cutoff at high energy end in a far-infrared region...

Background rejection plays a key role for experiments searching for rare events, like neutrino-less double beta decay (0$\nu$DBD) and dark matter interactions. Among the several detection technologies that were proposed to study these processes, cryogenic calorimeters (bolometers) stand out for the excellent energy resolution, the ease in achieving large source mass, and the intrinsic...

The Mu2e experiment at FNAL aims to measure the charged-lepton flavor violating neutrinoless conversion of a negative muon into an electron. The conversion results in a monochromatic electron with an energy slightly below the muon rest mass (104.97 MeV). The calorimeter should confirm that the candidates reconstructed by the extremely precise tracker system are indeed conversion electrons...

J.Thomas, A. Loving, J. Kelley, C. Wendt - University of Wisconsin, Madison Water Cherenkov neutrino physics experiments typically utilize thousands of large area PhotoMulitplier- Tubes (PMTs) distributed around water volumes of size 105 m3. The precision of the physics results de- pends on the overall enclosed volume, and so larger detectors of order 106 m3 are desirable but presently...
