Deep underground, in the Canadian Shield of Northeastern Ontario, a new world-class neutrino detector is poised to begin its measurements.

The Sudbury Neutrino Observatory

Sudbury Neutrino Observatory -- A New Eye on the Universe! (SNO)

Featuring a core of one million litres of Canada's heavy water in a unique acrylic sphere, 12 metres in diameter, the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (SNO) will use its unique sensitivity to all three flavours of neutrinos to investigate neutrinos from the Sun. At its great depth, and as a result of careful selection of materials for the detector and cleanliness during construction, the Observatory will have an excellent environment for its neutrino measurements.
