Super-Kamiokande was constructed in Kamioka to study neutrinos. Super-Kamiokande is a 50,000 ton water Cherenkov detector. The experiment began in 1996. In 1998, neutrino oscillation was discovered by the studies of atmospheric neutrinos. Further studies on neutrinos are in progress in Kamioka. KAGRA is a project trying to observe gravitational waves with 3km X 3km arm lengths laser interferometer constructed deep underground in Kamioka. We expect to begin the operation in this year. I will discuss neutrino and gravitational wave studies in Kamioka.
We plan to broadcast this talk using TeamSpeak. Use a sub-channel of LIGO Lab called "LIGO Seminar", which is not password protected. NOTE: These and all other scheduled LIGO seminars are listed on the LIGO Laboratory seminar calendar for convenient reference.
This LIGO Seminar will be televised.
