Description

Many of the outstanding questions in astroparticle and subatomic physics today require the ultra-quiet environment provided by deep underground research facilities. SNOLAB is one such facility, based at a depth of 2km in the Vale Creighton mine near Sudbury, Ontario. In this environment, cosmic radiation induced backgrounds are minimized to levels allowing the operation of sophisticated experiments. The status of the lab will be discussed as well as several current and future experiments.

Summary

The status of the SNOLAB facility and the current and future experiments will be discussed.
