Description

The Laboratorio Subterráneo de Canfranc (LSC) is the second largest deep underground facility in Europe. It is located in north of Spain under the Pyrenees at about 2500 m.w.e. depth. LSC has been in full operation since 2010. At LSC 1600 square meters underground are available for research. The LSC is equipped with a number of service facilities to support installation and commissioning of experimental set-ups. The LSC is a multi-disciplinary research infrastructure. Research activities are carried out on neutrino physics, direct dark matter detection, low background counting, geophysics and life in extreme environment. In the talk a review of the infrastructure and research activities will be given.
