The discovery of neutrino mass and neutrino oscillation has finally been recognized by the Physics Nobel Prize! The 2015 prize goes to Takaaki Kajita from Super-K and Art McDonald from SNO, recognizing our studies of atmospheric neutrinos and solar neutrinos … Continue reading
Jeff Gustafson’s search for dinucleon decay into pions was published and listed as an Editor’s Suggestion by Physical Review D. His search in three modes was negative but set new lifetime limits more than two orders of magnitude more restrictive … Continue reading
The Super-K collaboration has (finally!) published our paper (M. Litos et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 112, 131803) based on Mike Litos’ Ph.D. thesis search for dinucleon decay into kaons. This process changes baryon number by two units without any change in … Continue reading
