CUORE: completed the installation of the detector array

Members of the CUORE Collaboration on Aug. 26 completed the month-long installation of the particle physics experiment’s large detector array.

Located deep beneath a mountain in Italy and containing 1,650 pounds of tellurium dioxide crystals, CUORE will search for a never-before-seen particle transformation that could explain the abundance of matter in the universe. The experiment houses 1,650 pounds of tellurium dioxide crystals.
