Coherent elastic neutrino-nucleus scattering (CE$\nu$NS) is a neutral-current process in which a neutrino scatters off an entire nucleus, depositing a tiny recoil energy. The process is important in core-collapse supernovae and also presents an opportunity for detection of a burst of core-collapse supernova neutrinos in low-threshold detectors designed for dark matter detection. This talk will discuss the physics of CE$\nu$NS, its importance in core collapse, and prospects for supernova burst detection in low-threshold recoil detectors.
