The PICO project aims to detectect dark matter particles with the bubble chamber technique. The expriments are installed at a depth of 2 km in the SNOLAB underground laboratory at Sudbury, Ontario, Canada. The PICO collaboration is presently operating two dark matter search experiments: a bubble chamber filled with ~57 kg of C3F8 and a chamber loaded with 3 kg of C3F8. A much larger version of the experiment with up to 500 kg of active mass is in development.
Please follow these pages to find out about dark matter in the Universe and especially how PICO tries to hunt for it.
