A new low background laboratory in Pyhäsalmi mine in the Central Finland has been put into operation in the beginning of 2017. The laboratory operates at the depth of 1436 m (~4100 meters of water equivalent). In this paper, we present description of the laboratory’s existing facility and background conditions. In the laboratory, a series of measurements has been started where the 14C concentration is determined from several liquid scintillator samples. A dedicated setup has been designed and constructed with the aim of measuring the 14C/12C ratio smaller than 10-18 .

Underground investigation of extensive air showers spectra at high energy range of cosmic rays and other research in the Pyhäsalmi mine Yerezhep, N.; Trzaska, W.H.; Bezrukov, L.; Enqvist, T.; Kuusiniemi, P.; Inzhechik, L.; Joutsenvaara, J.; Loo, K.; Lubsandorzhiev, B.; Slupecki, M.; Saduyev, N.O.; Baktoraz, A.; Mukhamejanov, Y. (al-Farabi Kazakh National University, 2020)High energy particles reaching the Earth’s atmosphere are known as cosmic rays. As a result of interactions with nuclei of air molecules, cosmic rays induce showers of secondary particles, which can be divided into 3 ...

Estimated solar-neutrino capture rates of 131Xe : implications for multi-tonne Xe-based experiments Kostensalo, J.; Suhonen, J.; Zuber, K. (Institute of Physics, 2021)Various large-scale experiments for double beta decay or dark matter are based on xenon. Current experiments are on the tonne scale, but future ideas also aim for even larger sizes. Here we study the potential of the isotope ...
