Title: The CUORE Cryostat

Abstract

The Cryogenic Underground Observatory for Rare Events (CUORE) is a bolometric experiment for neutrinoless double-beta decay in 130Te search, currently taking data at the underground facility of Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso (LNGS). The CUORE cryostat successfully cooled down a mass of about 1 ton at ~7mK , delivering a uniform and constant base temperature. This result marks a fundamental milestone in low-temperature detector techniques, opening the path for future ton-scale bolometric experiments searching for rare events. In this paper, we present the CUORE cryogenic infrastructure, briefly describing its critical subsystems.
