"SNOLAB and the Search for Neutrinoless Double Beta Decay in Xenon"

Presented by David Sinclair, Carleton University

Wednesday, November 5, 2008, 1:00 pm — Hamilton Seminar Room, Bldg. 555

This talk will describe the new SNOLAB facility for the study of fundamental physics in an ultra-low background environment. SNOLAB is an extension of the facility built for the SNO solar neutrino experiment. The work towards a potential experiment in this facility looking for double beta decay in xenon will then be described. The plan is to look at a gaseous version of the EXO detector incorporating in-situ detection of the daughter barium ion. Some of the technical issues which must be overcome to make such a detector a reality will be presented together with a progress report on some of the solutions.
