      Research at the Sanford Underground Research Facility




    The Sanford Underground Research Facility (SURF) is an international facility dedicated to advancing compelling multidisciplinary underground scientific research, including physics, biology, geology, and engineering. Seven primary underground levels at SURF offer a unique environment that allows researchers the opportunity to explore an array of important science questions. Laboratories have been developed mainly at the 4850-foot level (1500 m, 4300 m.w.e.), where several experiments are well established. SURF is also home to the Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility (LBNF) that will host the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE). In addition to existing laboratory space, SURF is proposing additional underground excavation on the 4850-level, and initial engineering designs have been completed. This presentation will give an overview of the facility and the major science projects conducted underground while subsequently focusing on Nuclear Astrophysics research at the CASPAR (Compact Accelerator System for Performing Astrophysical Research) laboratory. CASPAR is also located on SURF’s 4850-level and operates a 1-MV fully refurbished Van de Graaff accelerator that can provide high intensity proton and alpha beams. The facility has produced first scientific results but was hibernating for the last almost three years due to the massive excavations for DUNE. CASPAR will be recommissioned soon, and the future program of the project will be discussed.
