About Sanford Underground Research Facility
Sanford Lab's dedication to science, research and development, and engineering, as well as its innovative approach to education, make it a world-leading science facility.
The Sanford Underground Research Facility supports world-leading research in particle and nuclear physics and other science disciplines. While still a gold mine, the facility hosted Ray Davis's solar neutrino experiment, which shared the 2002 Nobel Prize in Physics. His work is a model for other experiments looking to understand the nature of the universe.
The Facility's depth, rock stability, and history make it ideal for sensitive experiments that need to escape cosmic rays. The impacts on science can be tracked across the globe.
Sanford is one of the best cutting edge research facilities in the nation.
Sanford, thank you for all you do for our community. Your events, presentations, and research are so appreciated!
