SNO+ is a large-scale liquid scintillator experiment with the primary goal of searching for neutrinoless double beta decay, and is located approximately 2 km underground in SNOLAB, Sudbury, Canada. The detector acquired data for two years as a pure water Cherenkov detector, starting in May 2017. During this period, the optical properties of the detector were measured in situ using a deployed light diffusing sphere, with the goal of improving the detector model and the energy response systematic…

This work describes the development of the UK component of the worldwide grid that will handle 15 PB of particle physics data annually from this machine, from a prototype system to a full exploitation grid for real data analysis.

Ultraviolet (250-550  nm) absorption spectrum of pure water.

The data provide the first scattering-independent measurements of absorption coefficient in the spectral gap between well-established literature values for the absorption coefficients in the visible and UV, and a minimum in the absorption coefficient has been observed in the UV.
