Current Experiments

SuperCDMS_logo.pngSuperCDMS - A second generation dark matter detector using cryogenic germanium and silicon crystals supported by 135 researchers from 26 institutions.

 

 

 

 

 

 

CUTE.pngCUTE - A Cryogenic Underground Test Facility installed at SNOLAB with the goal to do performance tests, calibrations and background measurements.

 

 

 

PICOPICO - A second generation detector that is using superheated fluids to search for dark matter.  This collaboration includes researchers form 17 institutions around the world.   

 

 

DEAP-3600DEAP-3600 - A second generation dark matter experiment that uses 3.6 tonnes of liquid argon to search for dark matter particle interactions. This is a collaborative effort of researchers from 10 institutions in Canada, the UK and Mexico.  

 
 

 

EXOEXO - An experiment which will attempt to measure the mass of the neutrino and determine its nature -- Majorana or Dirac.

 

 

 

HALOHALO - A Helium And Lead Observatory that uses 79 tonnes of lead and 128 tubular He-3 detectors. This supernova experiment is part of the global SNEWS network.  

 
 

 

MiniCLEANMiniCLEAN - An alternative technology detector with researchers from 7 US institutions that will use 500kg of liquid argon for dark matter detection.

 

 

NEWS-GNEWS-G - A Canada-France collaborative effort in dark matter detection in the low mass range using high pressure gases.  

 

 

SNO+SNO+ - A tonne-scale double beta decay and multipurpose neutrino detector making use of the existing SNO detector. The collaboration extends across 23 institutions.

 
 
 
 

GenomicsFLAME - A genetics experiment that takes advantage of the increased pressure to study the impacts of working deep underground using fruit flies as a model organism.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

REPAIRREPAIR - A Canadian bioinformatics experiment that is looking at cellular growth and development in low and no radiation environments.
