Description

LOW ENERGY NEUTRINO PHYSICS AND DARK MATTER SEARCHES WITH SUB-KEV GERMANIUM DETECTORS Manoj Kumar Singh(*) and Henry T. Wong (on behalf of the TEXONO and CDEX Collaborations) Institute of Physics, Academia Sinica, Taipei 11529, Taiwan. (*) email: manoj@gate.sinica.edu.tw Germanium ionization detectors with sensitivities as low as 100 eVee [1] open a new windows for the studies of neutrino interactions and properties [2] as well as to search for light WIMP Dark Matter [3]. The TEXONO and CDEX Collaborations has been pursuing this research program at the Kuo-Sheng Neutrino Laboratory (KSNL) in Taiwan and Jinping Underground Laboratory (CJPL) in China. We will present highlights of the detector characterization and performance in the energy domain where the amplitude of physics signals is comparable to those due to fluctuations of pedestal electronic noise [1], as well as the status on light WIMP searches [3] and studies of neutrino-nucleus coherent scattering [4]. 1.
