Title: Energy Calibration of the NEXT-White Detector with 1% Resolution Near Q$$_{\beta\beta}$$ of $$^{136}$$Xe

Abstract

Excellent energy resolution is one of the primary advantages of electroluminescent high pressure xenon TPCs, and searches for rare physics events such as neutrinoless double-beta decay ($$\beta\beta0\nu$$) require precise energy measurements. Using the NEXT-White detector, developed by the NEXT (Neutrino Experiment with a Xenon TPC) collaboration, we show for the first time that an energy resolution of 1% FWHM can be achieved at 2.6 MeV, establishing the present technology as the one with the best energy resolution of all xenon detectors for $$\beta\beta0\nu$$ searches.
