Abstract: Progress toward first measurements of the beta-spectrum are reported with tritium-loaded graphene interfaced to the PTOLEMY MAC-E filter and measured with a 50mK microcal. The preparation for the commissioning of PTOLEMY and plans for neutrino mass measurements are presented and their relevance to BSM physics in the interface of neutrinos and cosmology.
