The event will also feature a live event where participants will take part in a virtual visit of the Sanford Underground Research Facility, site of the future Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment, hosted by Fermilab.
The Sanford Underground Research Facility (SURF) is a sprawling complex of underground labs that occupies the former Homestake gold mine in Lead, South Dakota.
EDT, ground was simultaneously broken at two sites for a new neutrino detection facility - one mile underground at the Sanford Underground Research Facility near Lead, South Dakota, and at Fermilab near Chicago.
The collaboration plans to build a staged 40 kt liquid argon detector at the Sanford Underground Research Facility in South Dakota, a high precision near detector, and a powerful neutrino beam line generated by a 1.2 MW proton beam produced by the PIP-II upgrade, evolving to a power of 2.3 MW by 2030.
The three xenon experiments are the Large Underground Xenon, or LUX, experiment, located in the Sanford Underground Research Facility in Lead, S.D.; the PandaX-II experiment at China's JinPing underground laboratory in Sichuan; and the XENON1100 experiment, located in the Gran Sasso National Laboratory in Italy.
The Sanford Underground Research Facility is located underground in a former gold mine, making it the perfect place for the Compact Accelerator System for Performing Astrophysical Research, which will soon be hosted there.
The LUX-ZEPLIN experiment, being built in a one-mile-deep abandoned gold mine at the Sanford Underground Research Facility in South Dakota, is a WIMP detector.
Caption: Incredible journey In the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment, slated to begin in the next decade, neutrinos (v) produced at Fermilab in Batavia, Ill., will journey 1,300 kilometers to the Sanford Underground Research Facility near Lead, S.D.
Particle physicists can now pin their hopes on the massive detectors at the (http://home.cern/about/updates/2016/07/lhc-performance-reaches-new-highs) Large Hadron Collider at the European Organization for Nuclear Research - the world's most powerful particle accelerator that is currently smashing protons at record energies - and next generation experiments such as the LUX-ZEPLIN (LZ) experiment, which is slated to replace LUX at the Sanford Underground Research Facility.
