From Super-Kamiokande to Hyper-Kamiokande

Project description

On the trail of new physics in a huge underground water tank shielded from cosmic rays

The laws of physics govern our universe, explaining things such as why we do not float off Earth into space as well as where the ball in a pinball game goes and how fast. Despite all the amazing discoveries, observations and theoretical developments over the last hundred years or so, there are important and acknowledged gaps in our understanding. We do not make the laws, we discover them. The EU-funded SK2HK project hopes to resolve or at least shed new light on some of the most important riddles associated with neutrinos by initiating secondments of European researchers to Japan’s Super-Kamiokande (SK) detector, the world's largest underground neutrino detector. Scientists will not only participate in neutrino experiments, they will also make important contributions to the experimental hardware required to upgrade the SK detector to the Hyper-Kamiokande (HK) detector, whose construction began at the project's start.
