The NUCLEUS experiment aims to perform a high-precision measurement of Coherent Elastic Neutrino–Nucleus Scattering (CEvNS) at the EdF Chooz B nuclear power plant in France. CEvNS is a unique process to study neutrino properties and to search for physics beyond the Standard Model. The study of CEvNS is also important for light Dark-Matter searches. It could be a possible irreducible background for high-sensitivity Dark-Matter experiments. NUCLEUS is based on ultra-low threshold (∼20 eVnr) cryogenic calorimeters, operated at tens-of-mK temperatures. At present, the experiment is under construction at the Technical University Munich, and will be followed by a commissioning phase before being relocated to the reactor site.

exceeds allowed length


In this proceeding authors present update on the status of NUCLEUS experiment which aims to observe CEvNS from reactor neutrinos with a 20eVnr threshold.
The manuscript is clearly written and well organised. The authors maybe consider to change on p.3 “CaO4” -> “CaWO4”. The length of publication exceeds allowed limit. I recommend to shorten the manuscript.
