SNO+ @ Queen's: About Us

Particle Astrophysics | Neutrino Physics | Underground Science

The SNO+ Research Group at Queen's University is a division of the Particle Astrophysics Research Group within the Queen's University Department of Physics, Engineering Physics & Astronomy in Kingston, Ontario. The SNO+ Experiment is also affiliated with the Arthur B. McDonald Canadian Astroparticle Physics Research Institute.

Members of the SNO+ Research Group are not only involved in the scientific analysis of SNO+ experimental data, but also the ongoing commissioning, development, and operations of the SNO+ detector.

Located 2km underground at the SNOLAB science facility near Sudbury, Ontario, SNO+ is a versatile kilotonne-scale liquid scintillator detector and the successor to the Nobel Prize-winning SNO experiment. The SNO+ Experiment has an extensive scientific programme, but primarily concentrates on neutrino physics - in particular, the search for neutrinoless double beta decay.

Our Motto: Fight 'til the beta beta end.
