The T2K Experiment

The T2K experiment is a long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment based in Japan. It utilizes a muon neutrino beam from the J-PARC accelerator which is sent 295 kilometers underground to the Super-Kamiokande detector (SK) in the Kamioka mine in Japan. The SK experiment is a giant water tank surrounded by photo-multiplier tubes to detect the feeble neutrino interactions.
