Description

Advanced Mo-based Rare process Experiment (AMoRE) is an international collaboration project to search for neutrinoless double beta decay (0νββ) of 100Mo using Molybdenum-based crystals. To increase the detection sensitivity for this extremely rare event, AMoRE aims at operating the detector in zero-background condition. A commissioning phase of the project, AMoRE-Pilot were carried out during the last 3 years. Although the physics result of the pilot measurements was promising to build larger sized detectors, we have identified and reduced various background sources. We are presently upgrading the detector system to the first phase of the project, AMoRE-I. In AMoRE-I, total 18 molybdate crystals with a total mass of about 6 kg are prepared for simultaneous detection of heat and light signals based on MMC readouts. This measurement will be carried out in the same cryostat used for the pilot measurement installed in Yangyang underground laboratory.
