Dr. Alex Wright awarded $400K
January 14, 2014

From the Queen's News Centre:

Dr. Alex Wright has been awarded $400,000 from the Canada Foundation for Innovation's John R. Evans Leaders Fund. The funding will provide purification infrastructure for SNO+, a neutrino experiment located at SNOLAB. "This infrastructure is critical to our ability to use tellurium, a rare metal, in SNO+," says Dr. Wright. "The tellurium will improve the capability of the experiment as we seek to determine whether or not neutrinos are their own anti-particles, and hence to better understand the role neutrinos played in the evolution of the universe."
