World's largest neutrino detector approved

Japan is set to build the largest neutrino detector in history, known as Hyper-Kamiokande, after a cabinet committee approved billions of yen for its construction on 13 December, 2019.

VISPA group members lead the Canadian group participating in this important experiment to better understand neutrinos and search for proton decay. The Canadian group is requesting funding from the Canadian Foundation for Innovation to construct the near detector for the experiment. More information about VISPA activities in neutrino research is found here.
