Royal Holloway, University of London, is developing physics detectors for studying neutrino interactions and searches for dark matter.
A cleanroom is an essential requirement when working with these types of detectors, as the detection medium is gas so any impurities will affect the quality of the experiment.
“Without a cleanroom, you can’t do the science,” explains Dr Joseph Walding. “The environment must be clean when the detectors are open.”
Connect 2 Cleanrooms worked with Royal Holloway to develop a softwall cleanroom to support the R&D project, providing the most competitive quote that met the footprint and classification requirements set.
With cleanrooms in many of the UK’s leading universities, Connect 2 Cleanrooms designed a cleanroom that is a freestanding, compact, classified environment, featuring castors so it can be easily relocated if required.
The detectors feature a low pressure gas and a high pressure gas system and are so sensitive they need to be operated in a clean environment, as well as constructed in one.
“We’re doing a lot of research and development on the detectors at the university. Once the dark matter detector is ready it will go to an underground laboratory, which is also a clean environment,” continues DrWalding.
“The neutrino detector will also be going to a national laboratory and operated in a beam-line, which again requires a cleanroom environment. The end goal of the neutrino research is to understand why there is very little anti-matter in the Universe.”
