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 […]
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”
