Abstract

This senior project will provide the reader with a brief background about neutrinos, neutrinoless double beta decay, and the CUORE experiment being constructed in the Gran Sasso National Laboratory in Assergi, Italy. The remainder of the paper will follow my experience working as an undergraduate researcher at the laboratory during the summer of 2012. It will discuss the process of performing a cool down with the CUORE-0 cryostat as well as quality assurance testing of Teflon spacers to be used in the CUORE towers.
