In this talk, the technique of using bubble nucleation in superheated liquid detectors for dark matter searches is addressed. This technique can be very competitive, especially for the case of spin dependent interaction. Different detectors, such as bubble chambers, liquid droplets and geyser chambers will be presented. Finally, the activities and results of PICO bubble chambers will be shown....

Several kinds of photomultipliers are widely used in astroparticle physics detectors to measure Cherenkov light in media like water or ice. In neutrino telescopes the key element of the detector is the optical module, which consists of one or more photodetectors inside a transparent pressure-resistant glass sphere. The glass sphere serves as mechanical protection while ensuring good light...

The Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) is a large collaborative effort aimed at the design and operation of an observatory dedicated to the very high-energy gamma-ray astrophysics in the energy range 30 GeV - 100 TeV, which will yield about an order of magnitude improvement in the sensitivity with respect to the current major arrays (H.E.S.S., MAGIC, and VERITAS). Within this framework, the...

In cosmic rays experiments based on the measurement of UV light, the knowledge and constant monitoring of the atmospheric transmission through aerosols is fundamental, due to the large time variation. The corresponding correction to EAS energy can range from a few percent to more than 40%, depending on aerosol attenuation conditions, distance of the shower and energy. The Atmospheric Research...

The Air Microwave Yield (AMY) experiment investigate the molecular bremsstrahlung radiation emitted in the GHz frequency range from an electron beam induced air-shower . The measurements have been performed at the Beam Test Facility (BTF) of Frascati INFN National Laboratories with a 510 MeV electron beam in a wide frequency range between 1 and 20 GHz. We present the apparatus and the...
