Abstract: Thermal detectors are introduced and their possible impact on neutrinoless doublebeta-decay (2ß0?) search is discussed. The thermal experiment MIBETA is described, reporting the up-to-date limits on 130Te and 128Te. A new generation experiment, consisting in a large expansion of MIBETA and known as CUORE, is presented and discussed.
