Speaker

Prof. Nigel Smith (SNOLAB)

Description

Direct searches for dark matter candidates require deep underground research facilities and specialised low background infrastructure and associated capabilities. As the dark matter community develops ever more sensitive detectors, the requirements placed on deep underground facilities and these capabilities become even more stringent. This talk will review recent progress within deep underground facilities at providing these required research infrastructures, including the recent steps to provide greater coordination between the research facilities.
