Paper Abstract

The response to (alpha) - (beta) - and (gamma) -ray of bolometers made with a superconducting absorber and a germanium thermistor is experimentally investigated at temperatures around 100 mK. An unexpected effect was detected when a bolometer with a superconducting rhenium absorber is cooled in a weak magnetic field. Preliminary results on investigation of 187Re decay by means of a Re-Ge (mu) -calorimeter will be presented.
