Abstract

In this paper we discuss the possibility of building a 5-10 ton cryogenic Indium bolometer for measuring electron neutrinos from the sun or a terrestrial source. Such a detector could be placed at an underground location such as the proposed India based Neutrino Observatory (INO). The simulation studies, based on GEANT4, of such a detector built of units in the form of a cube of various sizes are in progress. The preliminary estimates of the cell size to obtain S/N are reported.
