SuperCDMS SNOLAB Map (image) DOE/SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory Share Print E-Mail Caption The SuperCDMS dark matter experiment will be located at the Canadian laboratory SNOLAB, 2 kilometers (6,800 feet) underground inside a nickel mine near the city of Sudbury. It's the deepest underground laboratory in North America. There it will be protected from high-energy particles, called cosmic radiation, which can create unwanted background signals.
