Impact of ADC non-linearities on the sensitivity to sterile keV neutrinos with a KATRIN-like experiment

Abstract : ADC non-linearities are a major systematic effect in the search for keV-scale sterile neutrinos with tritium β -decay experiments like KATRIN. They can significantly distort the spectral shape and thereby obscure the tiny kink-like signature of a sterile neutrino. In this work we demonstrate various mitigation techniques to reduce the impact of ADC non-linearities on the tritium β -decay spectrum to a level of
