Description

Located 350 feet beneath the surface the MINOS Underground Areas, at Fermilab provide a useful shallow testing site for Dark Matter Detector R&D. It is accessible 24hrs/day, 365 days/year, under normal circumstances, with minimal training. The area is fully supported by Fermilab staff and resources, including network capabilities and other utilities. It has been used by the DAMIC and COUPP experiments to trouble shoot problems before moving to the deeper and less accessible SNOLAB. Other notable test experiments include DM-Ice, Sci-Bath, Peanut, and ArgoNeuT.
