“The innovations of the LUX experiment form the foundation for the LZ experiment,” Harry Nelson from the University of California, Santa Barbara, and spokesperson for LZ, said in the statement. “We expect LZ to achieve 70 times the sensitivity of LUX. The LZ program continues to pass its milestones, aided by the terrific support of the Sanford Lab, the Department of Energy and its many collaborating institutions and scientists. LZ should be online in 2020.”
