The Hyper-K experiment has been officially delcared a high-priority large scale project in Japan. The Science Council of Japan has awarded this very competetive status to just 28 projects. http://www.scj.go.jp/ja/info/kohyo/kohyo-23-t241-1.html
The T2HKK workshop, about the potential of a second Hyper-K tank in Korea, is underway. Presented today are many studies on the improved sensitivity that may be achieved by this configuration of the Hyper-K experiment.
The 4th Hyper-K proto-collaboration meeting has drawn to a close after three days of talks and fruitful discussion. Nearly 100 physics collaborators met at Kavli IPMU, The University of Tokyo, 13-15th February 2015. The Hyper-K experiment is designed to be a multipurpose detector to study solar, atmospheric, supernova and accelerator-based neutrinos in addition to proton […]
The University of Tokyo held the workshop on supernova at Hyper-Kamiokande. Hyper-K is designed to be a multipurpose detector to study topics such as neutrino oscillations, proton decay and supernova neutrinos. This workshop focused on the potential of Hyper-K to study neutrinos from supernova, with some attention to those from other astrological sources. The wide […]
