An alternate configuration for the Hyper-K experiment has been proposed that locates the second far detector in Korea, at a distance of about 1000km from the source. Studies have been performed to predict the sensitivity with which Hyper-K may answer two of the remaining neutrino puzzles (amount of CP violation, and the pattern of the […]

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: breakthroughprize.org/Laureates youtube/BreakthroughPrize facebook/BreakthroughPrize twitter/brkthroughprize
On 6 October, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics for 2015 to Takaaki Kajita Super-Kamiokande Collaboration University of Tokyo, Kashiwa, Japan and Arthur B. McDonald Sudbury Neutrino Observatory Collaboration Queen’s University, Kingston, Canada “for the discovery of neutrino oscillations, which shows that neutrinos have mass”
Symmetry Magazine has recently posted an article featuring Hyper-Kamiokande and the motivations behind this project. You can read it here!
The first Hyper-Kamiokande Collaboration Meeting will be held at the Kavli IPMU, Kashiwa, between June 29 and July 1 2015. Contrary to what was done in the past, this is not an open meeting, therefore only members of the Hyper-Kamiokande proto-collaboration and some invited guests can join. More details can be found on the meeting […]
