Due to hazardous winter weather conditions, SURF will transition to an “essential personnel only” operations mode starting at 5:00PM MT today (Monday, Feb 24). At this time, we plan to return to normal operations tomorrow at 5:00PM MT (Tuesday, Feb 25). Normal day shift operations are cancelled for Tuesday.Due to hazardous winter weather conditions, SURF will transition to an “essential personnel only” operations mode starting at 5:00PM MT today (Monday, Feb 24).

BHSU Underground Campus
An underground campus used by experiments across the globe and managed by local university faculty and students.
CASPAR is a low-energy particle accelerator that allows researchers to study processes that take place inside collapsing stars.
In 1969, a chemist by the name of Ray Davis began an experiment to detect neutrinos coming from the sun. In 2002 he would be awarded a share of the Nobel Prize for his work.
Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment
The Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility (LBNF) will host the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment to study the property of the neutrino.
The Deep Underground Gravity Laboratory placed sensitive instruments in Sanford Lab to determine whether it is suitable for a large gravitational wave experiment—and to monitor the earth.
GEOXTM created the world's largest, deepest network of underground fiber-optic strain and temperature sensors and tiltmeters to measure the movement and deformation of rock systems underground.
kISMET hopes to develop permeability enhancement techniques that can improve the ability to extract heat from geothermal reservoirs deep below the surface of the Earth.
The Majorana Demonstrator experiment could help us understand the imbalance of matter and antimatter in the universe—and tell us why we exist at all.
The LUX experiment
When LUX completed its 300-live-day run in May of 2016, the world learned LUX was even more sensitive than previously determined.
The LZ experiment
LZ (LUX-ZEPLIN) will be 30 times larger and 100 times more sensitive than its predecessor, the Large Underground Xenon experiment.
