Description

CUORE is a cryogenic-bolometer detector consisting of 988 TeO2 crystals, 750 g each, operated at a temperature of 10 mK, currently under construction in Gran Sasso Underground Laboratory. Its goal is to search for neutrinoless double beta decays with a sensitivity to the effective neutrino mass as low as a few tens of meV. CUORICINO, its pilot experiment, has proven the feasibilty of CUORE, setting moreover the current lower limit on the lifetime of 130Te for neutrinoless double beta decay: we report on the up-to-date CUORICINO results and discuss the prospects for CUORE.
