CO-HOSTED BY Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and the University of Washington
The Low Radioactivity Techniques (LRT) workshop series examines topics in low radioactivity materials and techniques, a fundamental aspect of rare event searches. Topics include 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 fifth workshop in the LRT series. Previous LRT workshops have been held around the world, including LRT2013 at LNGS (Assergi, Italy), LRT2010 at SNOLAB (Sudbury, Canada), LRT2006 at Modane (Aussois, France), and the inaugural LRT2004 hosted at Laurentian University (Sudbury, Canada).
