The Physics Department hosted the collaboration meeting for the SuperCDMS (Cryogenic Dark Matter Search) Experiment August 3-5, 2022.
Nearly 50 collaboration members attended the hybrid-format meeting in-person, with another 50 attending virtually. The collaboration includes dark matter hunters from across the world, including Canada, United States , Germany, Spain, India, and UAE.
The meeting focused on tackling the challenges of installing and commissioning highly sensitive particle detectors in SNOLAB, Canada's world-leading astroparticle physics facility, to prepare for the start of science runs next year.
Fun highlights of the meeting included a BBQ on the physics patio, liquid nitrogen ice cream, dark matter coffee, and subatomic particle plushies.
