Stock Photo - NEXT (Neutrino Experiment with a Xenon TPC) is a neutrinoless double-beta decay experiment that operates at the Canfranc Underground Laboratory (LSC) ...
. It is based on a novel detection concept for neutrinoless double-beta decay searches consisting in a Time Projection Chamber (TPC) filled with high-pressure gaseous xenon and with separated-function capabilities for calorimetry and tracking..World leading project studying the nature of the neutrinos (on if the neutrino is its own antiparticle) searching a rare type of decay called double beta decay, The Laboratorio Subterraneo de Canfranc (LSC) has been excavated in the rock 800 m deep under the Mount Tobazo in the Spanish side of the Aragon Pyrenees. The rock filters the cosmic radiation providing the ""cosmic silence"", which is necessary to study rarely occurring natural phenomena such as the interactions with an atomic nucleus of neutrinos of cosmic origin or of particles of the invisible ""dark matter"". Dark matter provides 85% of the mass of the Universe, but we do not know what it is made of."", Canfranc, Huesca, Aragon, Spain, Europe
