LRT 2017, hosted by the Institute for Basic Science (IBS) Center for Underground Physics (CUP) and by Ewha Womans University.
The Low Radioactivity Techniques (LRT) workshop series examines topics in low radioactivity materials and techniques, a fundamental aspect of rare event searches.
Topics include global radioactivity measurement and screening facilities, low background counting techniques, purification and contamination control, Rn control, comsogenic activation of materials, and backgrounds and simulations for rare event experiments related to dark matter, solar neutrinos, double-beta decay and long half-life phenomena. This conference’s wide scope includes all aspects of the development of low background detectors and techniques.
The goal of this workshop series is to bring together experts in this field for presentations and discussion covering broadly the issues of low radioactivity techniques. The intention is to foster and continue the collaboration and resource sharing required for new generations of detectors to be developed at underground facilities.
This is the sixth workshop in the LRT series. Previous LRT workshops have been held around the world:
