bolometric neutrino detection

bolometric neutrino detection

[¦bō·lə¦me·trik nü′trē·no di‚tek·shən]
(nucleonics)
A technique for detecting low-energy neutrinos (less than 1 MeV) by measuring small temperature changes or the production of phonons (sound waves) generated in ultracold materials by the coherent scattering of the neutrinos off electrons or their coherent elastic scattering off nuclei.
