Review/Tutorial Low Temperature Detector Development and Physics Orals LM 001

Large low temperature detectors are widely used in nuclear and particle physics, from Dark Matter Searches to Double Beta Decay and, more generally, in rare event searches.
The ability to construct large calorimeters from a wide variety of materials is one of the important advantages of this technology.
The possibility - in addition to the heat- to use a second readout channel (scintillation light or ionization charge) in order to disentangle the signal over the background is nowadays deeply exploited by most of the experiments.
This talk will address the main practical challenges related to these detectors, with a summary of the main recent achievements and a prospective for the future.
