Plenary talk Underground laboratories Plenary session


Prof. Yeongduk Kim (Institute for Basic Science (IBS), South Korea)


With my talk, first, I would like to review the current status of leading deep underground laboratories worldwide. Major experimental facilities would be updated. And I would like to give more importance to new developments going on in those laboratories. I will try to cover new techniques in low radioactivity measurements, new equipment, etc.
In addition to these main topics, I will add multidisciplinary research underground, which is pursued in some laboratories, Biology, Geology, Environmental radioactivity measurements, R&D with semiconductor industries, etc.
