We will explore detection schemes and a novel xenon production technique for use in next-generation experiments to uncover the underlying physics behind rare and subtle neutrino interactions. This research will have applications in nuclear reactor monitoring projects, forensics detection technology, and cross-section measurements relevant to national goals to reduce global nuclear security threats.
