Description

Maintaining stable operating conditions is of utmost importance in any dark matter detector. The LZ detector will be the largest two-phase liquid xenon detector ever constructed and as such will require unsurpassed levels of monitoring. This talk will discuss R&D efforts to this end in the UK and will cover the development of position, liquid level and piezo-electric bubble sensors and of loop antennae for the detection of electric discharges.
