TREXDM: working in the LSC clean room

We share the work done in a clean room to make changes inside a detector. As you can see, taking care of possible contamination is essential and, for this reason, the clean room of the Canfranc Underground Laboratory is used. The team has been working all last week and continue to work this week to get the detector ready to take data the next week. In addition to this work, they have made this fantastic video and added music. Bravo!!
TREXDM is an experiment devoted to the search for low-mass WIMPS, installed at the LSC.

PhD thesis at Université Paris-Saclay and Laboratorio Subterráneo de Canfranc

Scholarship funded by the Canfranc underground laboratory (LSC) on an interdisciplinary program combining neutrino physics and quantum information: «Milikelvin technology for neutrino physics and quantum computing»

The thesis will consist on the study of the neutrinoless double beta decay of 100Mo with the CROSS experiment at the LSC  and the systematic evaluation of radioactive sources that can produce energy bursts in solid-state quantum devices, potentially limiting the performance of superconducting qubits for information processing.

Grant duration: 3 years (first year at IJCLab (Orsay, France) and two more years at the LSC )

Starting from : January 2th, 2023

Deadline for application: June 30th, 2022

«CosmicWISPers» COST Action approved

A new COST Action called «COSMIC WISPers in the Dark Universe: Theory, astrophysics and experiments» has been recently approved by the COST Committee. The Action deals with axions and other WISPs and their connection with astrophysics and cosmology. It is coordinated by A. Mirizzi of U. Bari and counts withe the participation of CAPA members, and many of the axion leading researchers in Europe and elsewhere.

Good news for the axion community!



Call for research position at the Nuclear and Astroparticle Physics Group

Call for research position at the Nuclear and Astroparticle Physics Group – Centro de Astropartículas y Física de Altas Energías (CAPA)- Universidad de Zaragoza
1 postdoc position
We are looking excellent and motivated candidates with experimental particle physics background to join the IAXO-UZ group.
The host group at the University of Zaragoza has a leading role in the International Axion Observatory (IAXO) experiment, whose primary aim is the detection of axions emitted by the Sun.
The near-term goal of the collaboration is the construction and operation of BabyIAXO, an intermediate stage to serve as prototype of the final IAXO systems, but already with a relevant physics program in itself.
The five years duration of the project should encompass the construction, commissioning and first physics results of BabyIAXO.
The positions here offered are intended to reinforce the activities of the Zaragoza group for the preparation of the BabyIAXO experiment, which are focused in the development, preparation and characterization of a new low-background Micromegas-based x-ray detector for the focal point of BabyIAXO.

Interested candidates should send their CV, a letter of motivation to:
In addition, they should arrange for two letters of recommendation to be send to the same address.
