CRESST II background discrimination: Detection of W-180 natural decay in a pure alpha-spectrum

Abstract:
For the first time the natural alpha decay of W-180 has been unambiguously detected in a (gamma, beta and neutron)-free background spectrum. This has been obtained by simultaneously measuring phonon and light signals with CRESST 11 cryogenic detectors. Results on the radio purity of the detectors and on the measured half-life of W-180 are presented.
