LUX-ZEPLIN (LZ) is a next-generation physics experiment searching for the elusive dark matter particles which are believed to make up most of the mass of the universe.
The LZ detector will employ a 7-tonne liquid xenon target to search for the rare interactions of these particles with ordinary atoms in the detector medium. The experiment will be located one mile underground at the Sanford Underground Research Facility (Lead, South Dakota, USA).
This is the site of LZUK, the collaboration of seven UK institutes working on LZ.
