Abstract

A 90 tons Liquid Scintillation Detector (LSD) is fully running since October 1984 in the Mont Blanc Laboratory, at a depth of 5200 hg/cm2 under ground. The detection of cosmic neutrinos of different origin is the main goal of this experiment. The detector is very well shielded against the local radioactivity and is extremely sensitive to detect low energy particles with a threshold of 5 MeV.
