Second Hyper-K Proto-Collaboration Meeting Underway

Around 100 particle physicists, members of the Hyper-K experiment, are currently meeting at IPMU in Kashiwa, Japan. Topics of discussion include: the cavity and tank; photosensors; data acquisition and electronics; calibrating the detector; developing software to simulate neutrino interactions in Hyper-K; and all the exciting physics we can do with the Hyper-K detector (solar, atmospheric, […]



Six neutrino physics experiments (Daya Bay, K2K, T2K, KamLAND, SNO, and Super-K) were awarded the 2016 Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics for: “The fundamental discovery and exploration of neutrino oscillations, revealing a new frontier beyond, and possibly far beyond, the standard model of particle physics.” Learn more here: youtube/BreakthroughPrize facebook/BreakthroughPrize twitter/brkthroughprize
