Slide1:  The New Canfranc Underground Laboratory (LSC) Laboratory of Nuclear and High Energy Physics, University of Zaragoza, 50009 Zaragoza, Spain. http://www.unizar.es/lsc The Canfranc Underground Laboratory (LSC) is an underground scientific facility devoted to experimental research in Astroparticle and Neutrino Physics since 1985. The LSC is operated by the Research Group on Nuclear and Astroparticle Physics of the Zaragoza University. It is located in the Somport railway tunnel (7.8 Km long, not in use). The LSC connects Spain and France across the Central Pyrenees. Scientific equipment Low temperature facility (12-20 mK) Electroforming copper facility (for small pieces) Underground clean room for R+D on detectors Ultralow background Ge detectors (for radiopurity measurements) Tons of archaeological and very old lead (for passive shieldings) LAB-1 1985-1995 LAB-2 Mobile 1992-1995 1980 m 1700 m 1440 m 780 mwe 1200 mwe 2500 mwe Ultra-Low Bkg Lab. 15 x 10 m (h=7 m) 20 x 5 m (h=4,5 m) LAB-3 1995 - Present Time LAB-4. New Canfranc Underground Facility Physics at the LSC Dark Matter Physics: Direct detection of galactic WIMPs Neutrino Physics: Double beta decay R+D on Low Background Physics: Natural underground sources, radiopurity of materials, active and passive shieldings development, ... Main Hall LSC: Status and future plans The new LSC was officially inaugurated in March 2006 At present a complete background characterization of the laboratory is being carried on Experiments to be considered in the new laboratory (with the partnership of ILIAS) are: Double Beta Decay, Dark Matter, Gravitational Waves, Neutrino Oscillations, … Main Parameters n ~ 10-6 n/cm2  ~ 2 x 10-2 g/cm2 s  ~ 2 x 10-7 m/cm2 s Rn ~ 50-100 Bq/m3 Spanish Pyrenees 1120 m Somport Road Tunnel New LSC access to facilities/offices LSC
