The expected event rates and the total energy deposited in such essentially bolometer type detectors are currently being estimated more precisely and they will appear elsewhere.
In general terms, a bolometer is a device for gauging electromagnetic radiation by means of heating of a material with a temperature-dependent electrical resistance.
A prospective device using BGMRs can detect with higher speeds than existing broadband bolometers (used in many space observatories) while providing comparable sensitivity.

Despite certain limitations, astronomers in the early 1960s quickly adapted the new germanium bolometers to infrared telescopes in ground observatories.
These transducers include a wide range of thermal detectors -- bolometers, thermistors, thermocouples, thermopiles and pyroelectric devices -- able to convert invisible EM energy into voltages or resistive changes.
Zinc molybdate tetraoxide (ZnMo[O.sub.4]), which can be utilized as cryogenic scintillating bolometers for neutrinoless double beta decay detection [1-3], has attracted interest in the last years as the host material for rare-earth ions [4-8].
