"The Hunt for Lepton Number Violation: A Cold-Hearted Approach"
ABSTRACT:

The CUORE experiment, a ton-scale cryogenic bolometer array, recently began operation at the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso in Italy. The array represents a signi cant advancement in this technology and exceeds the size of previous experiments of this type by more than ten fold. In this talk we give an overview of the design and performance of the detector and present the results from a high-sensitivity search for a lepton-number{violating process: 130Te neutrinoless double-beta decay.
