New T2K Result

Super Kamiokande Detector Half Full of Water

The T2K experiment has just announced the first tantalising glimpse of a mechanism that could provide the answer to the long-standing question of why there is more matter than anti-matter in the universe. The QMUL neutrino group are members of the T2K experiment and have been actively involved in this study. The experiment has operated for just over a year and collected very high statistics that are capable of revealing subtle features in the neutrino sector. The data have been carefully studied and have been found to contain the first telling evidence for the oscillation of muon into electron neutrino. This hints at the prospect of non-negligible CP-violation in the neutrino sector which can be responsible for the matter-antimatter asymmetry in the universe.
