Abstract

Abstracts are not currently available in GtR for all funded research. This is normally because the abstract was not required at the time of proposal submission, but may be because it included sensitive information such as personal details.

Description In the UK, we have built an ultra-low radioactivity tracking detector for SuperNEMO, obtaining world-leading low levels of radon and other impurities. This is a step toward proving the viability of this detection technique for the next generation of neutrinoless double-beta decay experiments.
Exploitation Route Many of the techniques developed in this project will have applications in low-background physics, such as the search for neutrinoless double-beta decay and dark matter. There may be applications to other fields of physics as well as beyond.

Description The progress of the SuperNEMO project featured in an article appearing in The Guardian newspaper in October 2015, following the successful transport of the first tracker module from the UK to France. There were also coverage of the SuperNEMO Demonstrator Module inauguration event in November 2017. The calorimeter optical module technology developed for SuperNEMO has subsequently been used to develop instrumentation for proton beam therapy, leading to successful grant applications in this area of medical research.
