Title: KM3NeT: physics program and real-time analyses
Abstract: KM3NeT is a multi-site neutrino telescope under construction in the depth of the Mediterranean
Sea, consisting of the Cherenkov telescopes ARCA and ORCA, both of which are currently in data-
taking. ARCA and ORCA are optimized in complementary energy ranges, allowing for the exploration
of neutrinos from MeV to tens of PeV. Among the primary scientific goals of KM3NeT is the
observation of cosmic neutrinos and the investigation of their origin. The combination of an
extended field of view and a high duty cycle of Cherenkov-based neutrino detectors is fundamental
for detecting neutrino candidates. The provision of low-latency alerts can enable a prompt follow-
up in the multi-messenger and multi-wavelength domains, that appears crucial for the detection of
transient and variable sources whose emission can rapidly fade. A further advantage of online
processing consists of the refined pointing directions of neutrino-induced events, particularly in the
case of poorly localized triggers such as gravitational waves. This contribution reports on the status
of KM3NeT and its multi-messenger program with real-time analyses, a novel system that is being
implemented for a fast reconstruction and classification of events.

Title: Kinetic Inductance Detectors for CMB experiments
Abstract: The Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) radiation represents the earliest light that permeated our universe and dates back to approximately 380,000 years after the Big Bang. Today, this radiation appears as a blackbody at 2.725K. The main observables of the CMB include its spectrum, temperature anisotropies, and polarization, all of which contain valuable information about the birth and evolution of the universe.
All observables of the CMB are characterized by very weak signals, embedded within astrophysical emissions from our galaxy. For this reason, in past years, increasingly sensitive detectors have been developed that could be easily multiplexed onto large focal planes. Kinetic inductance detectors are low-temperature superconducting resonators with high quality factors, and due to their properties, they meet all the requirements of CMB experiments.
This presentation will focus on the development process of kinetic inductance detectors, carried out in our laboratory, for different CMB and CMB-related experiments, such as OLIMPO, MISTRAL, COSMO, and QUIJOTE. The results of the characterization of some detector arrays (in the laboratory, at the telescope and in near space) will be showcased as examples.
