What is the SNOLAB?

 

 

SNOLAB is an underground science laboratory specializing in neutrino and dark matter physics. Located 2 km below the surface in the Vale Creighton Mine located near Sudbury, Ontario, Canada, SNOLAB is an expansion of the existing facilities constructed for the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (SNO) solar neutrino experiment. SNOLAB follows on the important achievements in neutrino physics achieved by SNO and other underground physics measurements. The primary scientific emphasis at SNOLAB will be on astroparticle physics with the principal topics being:

 

  • Low Energy Solar Neutrinos
  • Neutrinoless Double Beta Decay
  • Cosmic Dark Matter Searches
  • Supernova Neutrino Searches

 

We will be spending half a day at the SNOLAB facilities getting an underground tour of the lab!
