Note unusual day of the week

SNOLAB is  a 5,000-square-foot clean space 6,800 feet deep national laboratory in Canada – an ideal place to study neutrinos and search for direct evidence of dark matter. In this seminar, I will give an overview of the SNOLAB facility. I will discuss the two flagshipship experiments in more detail: SNO and DEAP . SNO is a 0.78 ktonne liquid scintillator detector studying neutrinos. It is on course to have a world-leading sensitivity in the search for neutrinoless double-beta decay in a few years time. This search will shed light on the nature of neutrinos. SNO + is also capable of observing many other neutrino properties. The second experiment is DEAP , a 3.6 tonne liquid argon which is about to start and expected to have a world-leading sensitivity in the search for dark matter.
