BULLKID is an R&D project on a new cryogenic particle detector to search for rare low energy processes such as low-mass dark matter and neutrino coherent scattering off nuclei. The detector unit we are designing consists in an array of around 100 silicon absorbers sensed by phonon-mediated, microwave-multiplexed Kinetic Inductance Detectors (KIDs), with energy threshold below 100 eVnr and target mass around 30 g. The single detector unit will be engineered to ensure a straightforward scalability to a future kg-scale experiment. In poster we will describe the proposed technology and the prospects of the project.
