We studied phonon and scintillation properties of Li2MoO4 crystals for the AMoRE-II (Advance Molybde- num based Rare process Experiment - phase II), an experiment aiming at detecting neutrinoless double beta decay of 100Mo. e Li2MoO4 is one of promising crystal candidates among molybdate crystals containing Mo element for a simultaneous detection of heat and light signals at mK temperatures. It i ... More

The COSINE-100 is a direct dark matter (WIMPs) search experiment with a 106 kg array of NaI(TI) crystals at Yangyang deep underground laboratory. Dark matter search experiments require ultra-low background conditions, thus background understanding and reduction are crucial to improve the sensitivity of the detectors. One of the dominant background contributions on the NaI(Tl) crystals is c ... More

Big Bang nucleosynthesis (BBN) theory predicts the abundances of the light elements D, $^3$He, $^4$He and $^7$Li produced in the early universe. The primordial abundances of D and $^4$He inferred from observational data are in good agreement with predictions, however, the BBN theory overestimates the primordial $^7$Li abundance by about a factor of three. This is the so-called cosmological lit ... More

In a direct search for the dark matter, leading experiments makes use of massive and low background detectors. Particularly, the detector is required to design with low radio purity materials, whose impurities such as U-238 and Th-232 are in the ppb level. We have been developing a new detector of alpha-rays emitted from the material surface based on a time projection chamber technology. NEWAGE-0. ... More

A variety of experiments have been developed over the past decades, aiming at the detection of Weakly Interactive Massive Particles (WIMPs) via their scattering in an instrumented medium. The sensitivity of these experiments has improved with a tremendous speed, thanks to a constant development of detectors and analysis methods. Detectors capable of reconstructing the direction of the ... More

The Standard Model of particle physics have been extremely successful so far, but there are still many unanswered questions like the origin of neutrino mass, nature of dark matter, the source of quark and lepton flavor mixing and their possible correlation, the theory of grand unification of all SM interactions. In this talk I will focus on some interesting models that attempt to answer these ques ... More

XMASS is a multi-purpose experiment using a single-phase liquid-xenon scintillator detector located underground at Kamioka Observatory in Japan. We are continuously taking data since November 2013 for more than four years. Leveraging a low-energy threshold and low background, XMASS has performed various researches especially in fields of dark matter and neutrinos, both of which are in the scope o ... More

In this letter we have explored the possibility of embedding the genesis of lepton asymmetry within the well studied *Scotogenic* model. We have shown that in this model one can have a Dark Matter in the TeV scale. The model is highly constrained in the context of dark matter,neutrino mass, Flavor Physics and now also gets an additional constraint on the relative complex phases from the required ... More

Two major experiments, the AMoRE (Advanced Mo based Rare process Experiment) searching for neutrino-less double beta decay and the COSINE searching for dark matter WIMPs (Weakly Interacting Massive Particles), are running in the Yangyang underground laboratory (Y2L). To understand their signals, it is necessary to know the backgrounds from their detector materials like fasteners, crystal, cables, ... More

Measurements of the environmental neutron flux in the vicinity of dark matter search experiments are important because signals induced by these neutrons can mimic those that are expected from dark matter interactions. In order to establish a systematic understanding of the environmental neutron flux at the location of the COSINE-100 experiment, we developed a liquid scintillator neutron detector a ... More

The ORCA detector (Oscillations Research with Cosmics in the Abyss) is an underwater Cherenkov neutrino telescope that constitutes the low energy branch of the KM3NeT project, a next generation neutrino oscillation experiment located in the Mediterranean. The primary goal of KM3NeT is to solve the question of neutrino mass ordering through the measurement of matter oscillation effects using atmosp ... More

The COSINE experiment has been taking physics data which aim to confirm or refute the annual modulation signal reported by DAMA/LIBRA by using the same technique. In order to tag and suppress cosmic-ray muons, a muon detector was constructed using plastic scintillator panels that completely surround the crystal detector array. High energy muons in the NaI(Tl) crystals and low energy scintillation ... More

Double beta decay is a rare nuclear process of great interest due to its potential to provide information about physics beyond the Standard Model (BSM). For example, the discovery of the neutrinoless double-beta decay mode could give key information regarding conservation of symmetries: as lepton number, CP and Lorentz, or neutrino properties as: neutrinos character (are they Dirac or Majorana par ...

A reliable description of the double-beta-decay processes needs a possibility to test the involved virtual transitions against experimental data. Unfortunately, only the virtual transitions trough lowest $J^{\pi}$ states can be probed by the traditional electron capture or $\beta^-$-decay experiments. The ordinary muon capture (OMC) offers a versatile tool to analyze the nuclear structure of th ... More

The Cryogenic Underground Observatory for Rare Events (CUORE) is the first bolometric experiment searching for neutrinoless double beta decay that has been able to reach the 1-ton scale. The detector consists of an array of 988 TeO2 crystals arranged in a cylindrical compact structure of 19 towers. The construction of the experiment and, in particular, the installation of all towers in the cryosta ... More

The development of large area cryogenic light detectors is one of the priorities of next generation bolometric experiments searching for Majorana neutrinos. The simultaneous read-out of the heat and light signals enables particle identification, provided that the energy resolution and the light collection are sufficiently high. CALDER (Cryogenic wide-Area Light Detectors with Excellent Resolution) ... More

COSINE-100 is a dark matter direct dark matter search experiment that uses an array of scintillating NaI(Tl) crystals as a target/detector. The experiment started taking data in September 2016 and has been running stably since that time. We have fit the measured energy spectra in the NaI(Tl) crystals with a MC model that contains a variety of background components. The background sources will be d ... More
The Belle II experiment is a next-generation upgrade of the Belle detector and will operate at SuperKEKB, an energy-asymmetric $e^+ e^-$ collider. The accelerator has completed the first phase of commissioning in 2016, and the first electron-positron collisions in Belle II are expected in 2018. The design luminosity of SuperKEKB is $8 \times 10^{35}$cm$^{-2}$s$^{-1}$ and the Belle II experiment ai ... More
