Commissioning of the NEXT-100 detector

The assembly of the NEXT-100 detector was completed on 22 November. Over the next few months, it will work at low pressure to test and calibrate the instrumentation. The objective of the NEXT experiment is the detection of the neutrinoless double beta decay in xenon gas, and the NEXT-100 detector aims to further validate the technology with 100 kg of xenon gas and improve the background model for the future phases of the experiment.

New External Facilities for the BIO Platform

The new external facilities of the LSC biology laboratory have been completed in recent months. They now have the necessary equipment to reproduce the same assay conditions over and underground, the only difference between the two environments being the low radioactive background that is achieved by going deep into the heart of the mountain.

Pushing the sensitivity with the new ICP-MS-QQQ in the clean room underground

The LSC acquired a new triple quadrupole ICP-MS/MS, which was installed inside the Clean Room in our underground facilities. The ICP-MS equipment (Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometer) provides elemental information, either by qualitative, semi-quantitative and/or quantitative analysis, by ionising samples in an Argon plasma generated at atmospheric pressure.
