Description

Bolometric detection at cryogenic temperatures is a very a powerful technique to detect the nuclear recoils induced by the collision of WIMPs from our galactic halo on a laboratory target. The possibility to combine the phonon signal with either an ionization or scintillation signal results in an efficient rejection of the background from electron recoils. The excellent energy resolution opens the possibility of lowering the threshold for an optimal coverage in the search of WIMPs with masses below 10 GeV, were these bolometers lead the way. The present detectors, their results and the future planned improvements are presented.
