Description

The Boulby Observatory LEC Experiment Yielding Neutrinos (BOLEYN) is a 30 tonne neutrino detector to be sited at the STFC Boulby Underground Laboratory in Yorkshire, United Kingdom. BOLEYN will act as a testbed for emerging neutrino detection technologies. These include next-generation photosensor options, such as Large Area Picosecond Photo-Detectors (LAPPDs) and wavelength shifting plates instrumented with SiPM strips along the edge(s). BOLEYN will also have the capability to deploy a variety of novel fill materials, including gadolinium-loaded water-based liquid scintillator, slow scintillator, and "LiquidO" opaque scintillator. The uniquely low levels of radon background at the Boulby Underground Laboratory make it an ideal location for BOLEYN; construction is expected to be completed next year (2023). This poster will give an overview of the BOLEYN detector, including the construction timetable and plans for its initial measurements.
