SNO+ detector's search for neutrinoless double beta decay

The SNO+ detector in Canada aims to observe an ultra-rare process called neutrinoless double beta decay in tellurium-130 nuclei. It will add tellurium to its liquid scintillator target to enable this search. Key steps are calibrating the detector, quantifying backgrounds, and loading tellurium while preserving scintillator purity.
