Needless to say, it is important to select ultra-low background materials for dark matter and $0\nu\beta\beta$ detectors. All materials and components must be evaluated before the detector construction. This presentation will focus on developing a database for such purpose based on the open source database, Persephone (radiopurity.org). The aim of this project is to share information on low-rad ...

Type: Oral Session: Session 3
Modern rare-event search experiments are developed in iterations with years of engineering work being informed by a number of competing inputs. Every iteration of the design and the construction process must be validated to satisfy radioactivity-related background requirements. Published materials assay results and compilations such as radiopurity.org form an extremely useful starting point for ... More

Type: Oral Session: Session 3
Rare-event searches — such as dark matter and neutrinoless double-beta decay experiments — at deep underground laboratories have stringent radiopurity requirements for their construction materials. Researchers have to determine the radiopurity specifications for all physical elements of the experiment, then source, assay, and acquire these components. Over the last several decades, researche ... More
