On August 15-20, Dr. Masayuki Wada, the leader of AstroCeNT research group nr 4 (Ultrapure SiPMs and Associated Readout Electronics), paid visit to Canada, Edmonton to participate in DardSide Collaboration workshop. The workshop was organized by the University of Alberta.
The DarkSide collaboration is an international affiliation of universities and labs seeking to directly detect dark matter in the form of weakly interacting massive particles. The collaboration is planning, building and operating a series of liquid argon time projection chambers (TPCs) that are employed at the Gran Sasso National Laboratory in Assergi, Italy.
Dr Wada’s travel was funded from the DarkWave project.
