Early development of a test-bed to measure fractoluminescence in scintillators & simulation of a Na-24 source for the SNO+ experiment
This thesis consists of two parts; the first part pertains to fractoluminescence as a potential background in crystal scintillator detectors, and the second part bears on the simulation of a 24Na source to be used during ...
The Rayleigh ratio measurement for SNO+ liquid scintillator and background studies of the internal ropes
As a successor of the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory, the SNO+ experiment is planned to start data taking in early 2013. Making use of the liquid scintillator, Linear Alkylbenzene (LAB), the SNO+ experiment aims to perform ...
Analysis of Cosmogenic Impurities in Tellurium and Development of Tellurium Loading for the SNO+ Experiment
For the SNO+ neutrinoless double beta decay search, various backgrounds, ranging from impurities present naturally to those produced cosmogenically, must be understood and reduced. Cosmogenic backgrounds are particularly ...
Calibration Hardware Research and Development for SNO+
The SNO+ experiment is a kilo-tonne scale liquid scintillator detector located at SNOLAB in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada. As the successor to the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory, SNO+ will use linear alkylbenzene (LAB) as the ...
Background Measurement Techniques and Sensitivity Studies for the SNO+ Neutrinoless Double Beta Decay Search
The control of radioactive backgrounds will be key in the search for neutrinoless double beta decay at the SNO+ experiment. Several aspects of the SNO+ back- grounds have been studied. The SNO+ tellurium purification ...
Experiments and Monte Carlo Analysis for the Optical Properties of the Scintillator in SNO+
The SNO+ experiment will be the SNO detector filled with a neodymium-loaded liquid scintillator instead of heavy water. SNO+ will be used to detect neutrinos of much lower energy. Also, SNO+ will conduct a search for ...
