High Energy Seminar
China Jinping underground lab and the PANDAX dark matter experiment
Date: Tuesday, April 19th
Time: 3:00 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: Xiang Liu
Abstract: China Jinping underground laboratory is located in Sichuan China. It
is built in the middle of a transporting tunnel of a hydropower plant.
With an overburden of more than 7000 m.w.e., it is among the deepest
underground laboratory in the world. Two dark matter experiments are planed at the underground lab, one is the CDEX (China Darkmatter EXperiment) utilizing point-contact HPGe detectors, another is the PANDAX (Particle AND Astroparticle Xenon observatory) using two-phase Xenon technique. I will give a review of the Jinping underground lab and the PANDAX experiment.
