"Measurements of Neutrino Properties with SNO and SNO+ and Experiments for Dark Matter Detection with Liquid Argon"

A description of the science associated with the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory and its relation to other neutrino measurements will be given, along with a discussion of several present experiments that are at various stages of development or operation for measurements of neutrino properties and searches for Weakly-Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPS) as Dark Matter candidates. The experiments include SNO+, in which the central element of the SNO detector will be replaced with liquid scintillator with Te dissolved for neutrino-less double beta decay measurements; DEAP, in operation at SNOLAB, using about 3300 kg of liquid argon for single phase direct Dark Matter detection; and a sequence of future experiments being pursued by the Global Argon Dark Matter Collaboration to use the unique properties of liquid argon to reach several orders of magnitude further to the Neutrino Floor: Darkside 20k and a future detector with 300 tonnes of liquid argon. The relevance of neutrino and Dark Matter properties to the composition and evolution of our universe will be emphasized.
