An optimized digital shaping filter has been developed for the Gerda experiment which searches for neutrinoless double beta decay in Ge-76. The Gerda Phase I energy calibration data have been reprocessed and an average improvement of 0.3 keV in energy resolution (FWHM) corresponding to 10% at the Q value for 0 nu beta beta decay in Ge-76 is obtained. This is possible thanks to the enhanced low-frequency noise rejection of this Zero Area Cusp (ZAC) signal shaping filter.

Abstract

An optimized digital shaping filter has been developed for the Gerda experiment which searches for neutrinoless double beta decay in Ge-76. The Gerda Phase I energy calibration data have been reprocessed and an average improvement of 0.3 keV in energy resolution (FWHM) corresponding to 10% at the Q value for 0 nu beta beta decay in Ge-76 is obtained. This is possible thanks to the enhanced low-frequency noise rejection of this Zero Area Cusp (ZAC) signal shaping filter.
