Hyper-Kamiokande Experiment to Begin Construction in April 2020
20 September 2018
On Sept 12th, Prof T. Kajita, 2015 Nobel Prize Laureate and Director of the Institute for Cosmic Ray Research (ICRR), University of Tokyo, on behalf of the University of Tokyo, host lab of the Hyper-Kamiokande experiment together with KEK, announced that the construction of the Hyper-Kamiokande experiment will start in 2020 (https://www.interactions.org/press-release/hyper-kamiokande-experiment-begin-construction-april-2020).
The Particle Physics Research Centre at QMUL have been searching for the very rare decay of the Higgs boson into two muons harvesting the data collected by the ATLAS experiment at CERN.
Hyper-Kamiokande (Hyper-K), a third-generation Water Cherenkov detector and the latest in an illustrious series of world-leading experiments located in Japan, is being developed by an international collaboration.
