We continue to review all events currently planned for the next sixty days and organizers will be notified if their event must be canceled, postponed, or held remotely. Please, check back on Indico during this time for updates regarding your meeting specifics.
As DOE O 142.3A, Unclassified Foreign Visits and Assignments Program (FVA) applies not only to physical access to DOE sites, technologies, and equipment, but also information, all remote events hosted by Fermilab must comply with FVA requirements. This includes participant registration and agenda review. Please contact Melissa Ormond, FVA Manager, with any questions.

Indico search will be reestablished in the next version upgrade of the software: https://getindico.io/roadmap/


This search is only for public events. Restricted events are not available.

The Super Cryogenic Dark Matter Search (SuperCDMS) is at the low-threshold frontier. Our detector technology can detect nuclear recoils at the eV-scale energies necessary for generation-two low-mass dark matter searches. The SNOLAB installation, which will be commissioned in the next two years, will produce world-class limits on the presence of low-mass (between 0.5 and 10\,GeV/c$^2$) dark matter. In this brief presentation I will discuss the detection mechanisms; SNOLAB running and backgrounds; and new mechanisms of dark matter interactions that these astonishingly sensitive detectors are beginning to probe.


An overview of the SuperCDMS experiment, focusing on the Generation-2 installation at SNOLAB.
