The SNO Homepage
The Sudbury Neutrino Observatory
The Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (SNO) results have provided
revolutionary insight into the properties of neutrinos and the core of the
sun. The detector, shown in the artist's conception below, was built 6800
feet under ground, in INCO's Creighton mine
near Sudbury, Ontario, Canada. SNO was a heavy-water Cherenkov detector
designed to detect neutrinos produced by fusion reactions in the sun. It
used 1000 tonnes of heavy water loaned from
Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL), and contained by a 12 meter diameter
acrylic vessel. Neutrinos reacted with the
heavy water (D2O) to produce flashes of light called Cherenkov radiation.
This light was then detected by an array of 9600 photomultiplier tubes
mounted on a geodesic support structure
surrounding the heavy water vessel. The detector was immersed in light
(normal) water within a 30 meter barrel-shaped
cavity (the size of a 10 story building!)
excavated from Norite rock. Located in the deepest part of the mine, the
overburden of rock shielded the detector from cosmic rays. The detector
laboratory, still functioning as part of the new
SNOLAB facility, is extremely clean to
reduce background signals from radioactive elements present in the mine dust
which would otherwise hide the very weak signal from neutrinos. Plans are
currently underway to upgrade the SNO detector for the new
SNO+ experiment.
The first co-spokesmen for the SNO collaboration when it was established in 1984 were Professor Herb Chen from U California, Irvine and Professor George Ewan, Queen鈥檚 University. For interesting accounts of the early development work for the SNO experiment, please see:
