The coldest place in the Pyrenees is in Canfranc CROSS team and LSC personnel have completed the installation of a shielded dilution refrigerator, running since last Friday April 12. Current temperature of the working area is 12.5 mK, -273.1 degrees Celsius. CROSS is a bolometric experiment to search for [...]
CROSS landing at LSC New instrument in Canfranc underground lab. Installation of the dilution refrigerator to host CROSS crystals for double beta decay searches.
First dark matter annual modulation test of DAMA/LIBRA results by ANAIS ANAIS-112, consisting of 112.5 kg of Sodium Iodine crystals, is taking data at the LSC since August 2017. This is the first model independent search for the DAMA/LIBRA modulation. No evidence of modulation found so far. More data [...]

This week, the NEXT-NEW experiment started their Run V, the first run with enriched Xenon (90% 136Xe). The experiment is already accumulating double beta decay events, which will be separated from the background noise. Also, the CROSS collaboration started the construction of the lead shielding which will host the [...]
After a day's work at the LSC we are surprised with this beautiful image on our way out
