Identification and Mitigation of Radioactive Backgrounds for Rare Event Search Experiments and underground science

Rare event searches and underground science have undergone considerable development over the last 3 decades, mostly dedicated to physics thematics such as the study of solar neutrinos, the search for dark matter and neutrinoless double beta decay. But more recently the study of the impact of cosmic rays and natural radioactivity on microelectronic components, on quantum circuits and even in cell biology is also growing.
