CRESST - Cryogenic Rare Event Search with Superconducting Thermometers

CRESST searches for dark matter using detectors which are operated at extremely low temperatures, where particle interactions can heat up the detectors strongly enough in order to be detected. Here you can learn the basic principles and concepts of the CRESST experiment:
