    Within the framework of xenon-based double beta decay experiments, we propose the possibility to improve the background rejection of an electroluminescent Time Projection Chamber (EL TPC) by reducing the diffusion of the drifting electrons while keeping nearly intact th...

    \Xe{136} is used as the target medium for many experiments searching for \bbnonu. Despite underground operation, cosmic muons that reach the laboratory can produce spallation neutrons causing activation of detector materials. A potential background that is difficult to ...

    Convolutional neural networks (CNNs) are widely used state-of-the-art computer vision tools that are becoming increasingly popular in high energy physics. In this paper, we attempt to understand the potential of CNNs for event classification in the NEXT experiment, whic...

    The NEXT experiment aims at searching for the hypothetical neutrinoless double-beta decay from the Xe isotope using a high-purity xenon TPC. Efficient discrimination of the events through pattern recognition of the topology of primary ionisation tracks is a major requir...

    The Neutrino Experiment with a Xenon TPC (NEXT) searches for the neutrinoless double beta ($0\nu\beta\beta$) of $^{136}$Xe using high-pressure xenon gas TPCs with electroluminescent amplification. A scaled-up version of this technology with $\sim1$tonne of enriched xeno...

    The measurement of the internal $^{222}$Rn activity in the NEXT-White detector during the so-called Run-II period with $^{136}$Xe-depleted xenon is discussed in detail, together with its implications for double beta decay searches in NEXT. The activity is measured throu...
