Neutrino Experimental Facility

T2K is a long baseline neutrino oscillation experiment, where neutrino beam produced at J-PARC neutrino facility is detected with a giant neutrino detector, Super-Kamiokande, located 295km away at Kamioka mine, Gifu Prefecture. T2K (Tokai to Kamioka) was named from the first letters of Tokai, where J-PARC is located, and Kamioka city. One of the primary purposes of the T2K experiment is to detect electron neutrino appearance (Please visit the neutrino facility web page for more detail).

T2K collaboration

The T2K experiment, which has the world-leading sensitivity for neutrinos, has attracted many researchers around the world, and in fact more than 500 researchers from 12 countries: Japan, US, UK, Italy, Canada, Korea, Switzerland, Spain, Germany, France, Poland, and Russia have joined this international experiment. In Japan, about 80 researchers and students from KEK, the Institute for Cosmic Ray Research of The University of Tokyo, Osaka City University, Kyoto University, Kobe University, The University of Tokyo, and Miyagi University of Education participate in this experiment as core members.
