Underground laboratory LSM - participation of the Czech Republic (LM2018107)

Acronym of RI: LSM-CZ

Hosting Institution: Czech Technical University in Prague

Partner Institution: National Radiation Protection Institute

Department administrating RI: Institute of Experimental and Applied physics

Period: 2020 - 2022

The main aim of the project is to support the Czech participation in the use and development of unique research infrastructure - Underground Laboratory LSM/ULISSE. The project will help sustain the existing technical equipment, support a construction of new facilities and their operation and maintenance for external users involved in interdisciplinary research (non-accelerator astroparticle physics, technologies of very low radioactivity, selection of radiopure construction materials), the continuation and expansion of the Czech participation in construction of scientific infrastructure of the laboratory (in the frame of international projects such as the SuperNEMO experiment, radon program for underground laboratories, pixel detector technology in underground laboratories). The project also aims to support the domestic technological industry by delivering the equipment needed for LSM/ULISSE.

This project is supported by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic under the contract number LM2018107.
