The TORCH concept is based on the detection of Cherenkov light produced in a quartz radiator plate. It is an evolution of the DIRC technique, extending the performance by the use of precise measurements of the emission angles and arrival times of detected photons. This allows dispersion in the quartz to be corrected for, and the time of photon emission to be determined with a target...

The NA62 experiment at CERN has been constructed to measure the ultra rare charged Kaon decay into a charged pion and two neutrinos with a 10% uncertainty. The main background is made by the charged kaon decay into a muon and a neutrino which is suppressed by kinematic tools using a magnetic spectrometer and by the different stopping power of muons and pions in the calorimeters. A RICH...

Machine learning techniques have already started to take place in the offline analysis of the data obtained with the collider detectors. The implementation is usually in the form of supervised learning where the machine learning algorithms are trained for certain classification or regression tasks and then utilized on the actual data. With recent developments on the hardware that are...

With their excellent energy resolution, efficiency, and intrinsic radio-purity, cryogenic calorimeters are primed for the search of neutrino-less double beta decay (0nDBD). The sensitivity of these devices could be further increased by discriminating the dominant alpha background from the expected beta-like signal. The CUPID-0 collaboration aims at demonstrating that the measurement of the...

The Cryogenic Underground Observatory for Rare Events (CUORE) is the first bolometric experiment reaching the 1-ton scale. The detector consists of an array of 988 TeO2 crystals arranged in a cylindrical compact structure of 19 towers. The construction of the experiment and, in particular, the installation of all towers in the cryostat was completed in August 2016: the experiment is now...
