Description

The SNO+ experiment, at the SNOLAB underground laboratory, consists of 780 Mg of linear alkylbenzene scintillator contained in the 12 m diameter SNO acrylic sphere and and observed by the SNO photomultiplier tubes. SNO+ will be loaded with tellurium, at approximately the 0.3% level to enable a sensitive search for neutrinoless double beta decay. This talk will detail the experiment, the sensitivity and the status of the detector.
