Latest T2K Results May Hint at Matter over Anti-Matter Make up of the Universe

The T2K collaboration has released new results that may indicate neutrinos and anti-neutrinos oscillate differently. Two articles describing the exciting result can be found in ScienceDaily   and International Business Times. The T2K public website contains public information and T2K scientific publications.

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 …
