Mr. Andrew Scarff (University of Sheffield)


Radon is a big source of background for many experiments in particle physics, such as searches for dark matter. The facility at Sheffield has undergone recent improvements to the radon screening sensitivity. This will be discussed along with some recent work with Durridge to improve the background from the RAD7 radon detector used in the screening system.
