The detectors laboratory (DL) was created at LIP’s foundation with the main aim of supporting the experimental activities developed at LIP. The laboratory has been continuously updated according to the general and specific needs of the research groups. The available equipment and technical staff allow a variety of services, including the design, construction and repair of electronic circuits and vacuum systems, and the design, construction and testing of particle detectors.
Currently, large ongoing projects include the construction, mounting and testing of large area RPC-based systems for several projects in which LIP is involved, and of equipment for the SNO+ calibration system. The DL also gives support to many of the research groups at LIP.
