The production of Hyper-Kamiokande photosensors has begun

Charged particles generated by high-energy events, such as neutrino interactions or proton decay, emit Cherenkov light when they pass through the water. Photosensors attached to the wall of the Hyper-Kamiokande tank are used to collect this Cherenkov light. The light collected is then used to identify the type of each particle and to measure their […]
