Description

The LUX-ZEPLIN (LZ) experiment is a direct dark matter experiment utilizing a liquid xenon time projection chamber (TPC). An LZ system test platform has been constructed at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory to develop and validate technologies and instrumentation required by LZ. The testing goal is to ensure that LZ can meet its high voltage and purification requirements, as well as exercising a variety of LZ subsystems, from calibration source injection to PLC modules and slow control software. An overview of the LZ system test platform will be presented here along with results from its first runs.
