Publications from PUPS

In June 2001, SNO Scientists used the capability of the SNO detector to measure all three types of neutrinos to determine solar neutrinos are changing their flavour enroute to Earth, thus providing answers to questions about neutrino properties and solar energy generation. SNO was the first neutrino detector in the World to identify the changes in neutrinos during their journey from the Sun.


Since this initial finding, SNO and SNOLAB have continued to generate published reports concerning neutrinos and other topics involved in our science programme. There have been in excess of 700 technical reports issued detailing technical and other matters relating to the construction and calibration of the neutrino detector as well as more than 50 published papers and conference proceedings on astroparticle physics research undertaken at SNO and SNOLAB.
