oral presentation Overview of global radioactivity measurement facilities Session 1: Overview of global radioactivity measurement facilities

Speaker

Prof. Priscilla Cushman (University of Minnesota)

Description

The AARM (Assay and Acquisition of Radiopure Materials) collaboration was established for the purpose of designing a low background user facility at DUSEL. Over the last four years, it has been successful in uniting dark matter and double beta decay experiments around common issues of assay, simulation tools, and experimental validation of the physics processes underlying simulations. I will present the status and future plans of this group, which has another 2 years of funding under the Integrative Tools for Underground Science initiative.  Ways in which infrastructure for low background studies can be coordinated worldwide will be discussed.
