A successful 4th proto-collaboration meeting for Hyper-K collaborators came to a close yesterday

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 […]

Workshop on supernova at Hyper-Kamiokande, 12-13 February 2017, University of Tokyo

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 […]

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, […]
