CUORE has reached its operating temperature

Monday, January 30, 2017

We're very excited to announce a new milestone for our experiment: the CUORE detector has reached its operating temperature of 10 mK! This is over one ton of tellurium dioxide and copper cooled to a hundredth of a degree above absolute zero. We are now seeing clear signals from the detector, and our next phase is the optimization of our electronics and analysis software. Soon, we will begin taking official data, so stay tuned!

Thank you to all CUORE Collaborators, past and present, who have helped us reach this milestone!
