The 33rd SNO+ Collaboration meeting was held at Laurentian University from March 22-25, 2023 to discuss the major updates and near-term goals of the experiment.
We have identified antineutrinos from nuclear reactors located at least 240 km away using pure water. This is a first that pushes the capabilities of the established and highly-successful technology of large water Cherenkov detectors. This result could also impact approaches to nuclear nonproliferation using technology that is non-toxic, safe, easy to handle, and inexpensive.
