Welcome to the official webpage of CUPID!
CUPID is a project for the experimental search of 0νββ decay of 100Mo
using isotopically enriched Li2MoO4 scintillating crystals
operated as cryogenic calorimeters.
In these pages, you can find a description of the experiment, our publication list, the collaborating institutes, and a full list of contacts to reach us. Finally, photos of our experimental setups are available in the gallery.
CUPID Statement on Ukraine
The leadership of the CUPID experiment condemns the military invasion of Ukraine by the Russian Federation and deplores the tragic loss of life and the humanitarian impact of the war.
Ukraine is a member of CUPID, and Ukrainian scientists are valued and active members of the collaboration. CUPID will continue to uphold the value of scientific collaboration across borders, including our collaboration with scientists in the Russian Federation, as a driver for peace and for the benefit of all humanity.
The CUPID leadership shares the sentiments expressed by the INFN, the American Physical Society, and French Physics Society in response to the war in Ukraine.
