Dinucleon decay paper published in PRL

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

T2K Result Featured by PRL

Our most recent T2K publication (Phys. Rev. Lett. 112, 061802) shows the electron neutrino appearance signal interpreted in comparison with the measurements of electron antineutrino disappearance by the reactor experiments. The paper was featured in a PRL Viewpoint article discussing how … Continue reading

New results from T2K on electron neutrino appearance

The T2K collaboration is releasing the latest results on electron neutrino appearance, starting with the European Physical Society meeting today. This includes 2013 data taking at 220 kW and a world-record 1.2e14 protons-per-pulse. In the new data we found 28 … Continue reading

T2K Electron Neutrino Appearance Result Updated Through 2012

The T2K collaboration restarted data taking in early 2012 after recovery efforts from the Great Japan Earthquake of 2011 were completed at J-PARC.  We collected an additional 1.6e20 protons on target, somewhat more than doubling the 2011 data set. We … Continue reading

T2K Submits First Electron Neutrino Appearance Result to Physical Review Letters

The T2K collaboration has submitted our first physics paper to Physical Review Letters. In it we report the most significant evidence to date that muon neutrinos transform into electron neutrinos. This transformation is governed by a previously unmeasured parameter of … Continue reading
