Abstract

Large-mass bolometers are today extensively used for dark matter and double beta decay searches, in both cases the ultimate experimental sensitivity is defined by the background level reached in such devices. The most common background sources and the techniques used for their identification and reduction are here reviewed, with a particular focus on double beta decay searches. The relevant role played by Monte Carlo simulations in this field is discussed. As a real case, the background optimization in the MiDBD experiment is described
