Description

The IBS Center for Underground Physics in Daejeon, Korea supports a number of low-background rare-event physics experiments including the KIMS-Nai and LZ dark matter searches, the AMoRE double beta decay search, and the NEOS short-baseline reactor-neutrino oscillation experiment. As with all such experiments, reduction of background rates from long-lived radioactive decays and cosmogenic sources is critical to success and is central to almost all aspects of experimental design. By bringing together multiple related collaborations in one center, CUP is in a great position to develop a broad infrastructure for background reduction and radioactivity assay. I will report on the status of assay and background-control facilities at CUP including developments in direct gamma counting, alpha counting, and mass spectroscopy.
