Description The SNO+ experiment is a search for neutrinoless double beta decay, The discovery of this will tell us two key features of the neutrino, its mass and if it is its own antiparticle. The answer to these questions is an important step to understand physics beyond the standard model or particle physics and can help explain the evolution of the universe. This grant has aided us in getting SNO+ up and running and data collection is expected from 2016. The project is continued to be supported through the consolidated grant.
Exploitation Route We will continue to collaborate on SNO+ aiming to discover neutrinoless double beta decay with the aim to make SNO+ a success.
