In view of the next generation experiment CUPID, many R&D tests are
ongoing to define the detector design. CUPID aims to search for
neutrinoless double beta decay in a "zero background" environment,
rejecting alpha particles thanks to the simultaneous detection of heat
and scintillation light. It is of primary importance to optimize the
light collection to perform an efficient particle identification. R&D
tests on a single module of CUPID showed promising results in terms of
light yield and background rejection. Moreover the assembly planned for
CUPID has been tested to prove the light detector performances and the
energy resolution of cubic Li2MoO4 crystals.
