Mining for dark matter at SNOLAB

Robert Filgas

Institute of Experimental and Applied Physics, CTU in Prague

Abstrakt: International PICO collaboration is building and running a series of superheated liquid detectors searching for dark matter. They are located at SNOLAB in Canada, the deepest physics laboratory in the world, inside an active nickel mine. I recently spent 6 months underground, helping with the construction of the latest generation of the PICO 40 bubble chamber. I will describe technical details of this unique dark matter detector as well as practical challenges of working 2.1 km below ground during the Canadian winter.
