Dr. Erica Caden will give an overview of SNOLAB, a world-class science facility located deep underground in the operational Vale Creighton nickel mine, near Sudbury, Ontario in Canada. She will discuss the strong connection between SNOLAB and the Sanford Underground Research Facility, including the Nobel Prize winning Ray Davis solar neutrino experiment.
The combination of great depth and cleanliness that SNOLAB affords allows extremely rare interactions and weak processes to be studied. The science program at SNOLAB is currently focused on sub-atomic physics, largely neutrino and dark matter physics. SNOLAB seeks to enable, spearhead, catalyze and promote underground science, whilst inspiring both the public and future professionals in the field.
